Every year I like to make a couple new ornaments. This fabric scrappy ornament is a great way to use up those scraps of fabric in my stash.
This is an easy and quick ornament to make. Here is what you will need:
- styrofoam balls
- pokey tool – this could be a skewer
- wire for hanger
- optional – spray glitter fabric paint, gloves, cardboard box
To start, using my scissors I snip my fabric at 1.5 inches. Once snipped, I’ll tear the fabric into strips. Those strips are then cut into 1 inch pieces. So the final pieces will be 1 inch by 1.5 inches.
Now let’s add the fabric to the styrofoam ball. I first add a little glue, working on just a small area of the ball.
However, I wanted to add some sparkle so I sprayed on silver glitter fabric paint to jazz it up. Working in a ventilated area and in a box, I sprayed the ornament. If you want it heavily coated, let it dry between coats.
So much fun to make and use up those scraps of fabric.
