Christmas Ornament Making!

In December's Family Circle magazine there is a crafting how-to for making gorgeous ornaments! I am obsessed with making these sequined ornaments. They are very simple and anyone can make them. Here are some steps and photos:

1. Supplies you will need: Foam balls, ribbon, pins (get shorter ones depending on the size of the foam), and lots and lots of sequins!!!!! You will need more pins that you initially think. One ornament I made had about 180 pins in it!
2. Pin the ribbon into the ball.
3. Pin the sequins in any shape and direction you want around the ball.
Here are some pictures of my finished products. It takes awhile to do one ornament, but it's a good activity for a rainy day or while watching tv! Try it! It would make a great holiday present too.
