Christmas Ornament

I wanted to make something for our tree this year rather than buy a new holiday ornament.  Now mind you, this won't guarantee that I won't stop at Starbuck's for this year's ornament!! 


The ornament I made is relatively easy, just a  little time consuming.  I was thinking that the materials would be a great thing to prep and then put together while watching your favorite tv show or movie.  Maybe a Christmas movie?  Anyway, I cut 2-1/2" strips of CTMH cranberry and colonial white ribbon.  I hot glued them onto a styrofoam ball.  I added a touch of Martha Stewart gold ribbon, and it was done! This week, Really Reasonable Ribbon is asking for a Christmas theme, and Our Creative Corner is wanting a 3-D Holiday project.  This works great for both of those!

This is just beautiful- LOVE the ribbon!
How perfect to add to the ornament list this year. I always say I won't get any more but seem to acquire a few more each year. LOL
