Day 8 of Handmade Ornaments

Hi everyone! Here we are at day 8 of our
12 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments.
Today, Sarah from At Home with the Hinsons is bringing us an awesome ribbon ormament tutorial. Who doesn't love ribbon, right?
Enjoy this super cute ornament and have a super Tuesday!
Here is Sarah...
Hi all,
I'm Sarah from
At Home With The Hinsons.
I was so excited to hear about the 12 Days of Handmade Ornaments
and absolutely flattered to post a tutorial.
Thank you so much for inviting me over Kristin!

I first saw these ribbon ornaments at
The Untraditional Topiary.
I loved the idea and had to give them a try.

I started with styrofoam balls.
I purchased the smooth styrofoam to keep them from shedding.
They worked perfect with the sequins push pins I used.

Next I pulled out my ribbon stash.
I stock up on ribbon whenever it's on sale.

After choosing my ribbon I cut 4-5 inch strips.

Now it's time for the fun to begin!
I started with my first color of ribbon.
Take the ribbon loop and secure it with your straight pins.
I used one pin for the narrow and two for the wider width.

To make the ornament hanger,
I used a longer ribbon strip and secured it with tons of straight pins.

Keep adding ribbon,
the more the better!

Then bling it out a little by adding some fun tinsel. :)

When you think you're through hang it on the tree and admire your mad skills.

So do tell, what do you think?

Thanks again for having me!
I'd love to have you stop by my blog for more crafty creations.
God's blessings on your day sweet friends, Sarah :D
