Supplies needed for this project :

  • 3” Styrofoam balls
  • Fabric of choice
  • Rick rack or jute for hanger
  • String or jute for tying
  • Hot glue
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Ribbon, trims, etc
  • Other embellishments (peppermints, etc)

1. Cut and prep your fabric squares

Measure out and cut your fabric into 11×11” squares.

Once cut, fold in half one way, then fold in half again. Pinch the corner so it makes a visible center to your fabric. This is where you’ll glue your ball.

2. Glue the styrofoam ball to the fabric

Add a dot of hot glue to the center of your fabric and place the styrofoam ball on top to adhere to the fabric.

3. Add a hanger to the styrofoam ball

After your ball is centered, add some Rick rack to the top of the ball for the hanger. I used about a 10” piece. You could also use jute or any other coordinating ribbon.

This will be covered up by the fabric so it doesn’t matter where you place it. Just glue the ends about one inch apart at the top of the ball.

4. Glue the fabric to the styrofoam ball

Now, you’re going to start gluing the fabric to the ball, along each straight side. One side at a time.

5. Gather and tie the fabric

When you’re finished gluing your fabric to the four sides, bring the fabric together at the top. The point of gluing it, is so the fabric does not fall off if your ornament ever becomes untied.

I used crochet thread for this step, but you could use jute or ribbon. Hold the gathered fabric, then wrap the string around gathered part. Tie several times to secure, but don’t cut yet.

6. Add your embellishments

My ornaments were peppermint themed, so I started by adding a small peppermint onto the string before tying it off.

After the peppermint. I twisted some red and white pipe cleaners together for a fun addition to my ornaments.

I made curls with the pipe cleaners using a wooden dowel after wrapping them onto the ornaments.

Aren’t they cute?!

Next, I added some pom pom trim in white.

Last thing I added was an Awareness Bow made with this red peppermint ribbon from Dollar Tree!

And that’s it! I love my peppermint ornaments! What do you think? What fabric will you use?? I hope you enjoyed this diy and that it inspires you to make something similar for your Christmas tree decor! Make sure to join our email family so we can keep in touch!
