Do you have some cardboard boxes hanging around that need a little overhaul? Of course you do! Trace out some circles and grab your craft stash and let's get started making some Christmas Balls.
Blue and gold is my favorite holiday color combination. My mom was always trying to stay away from traditional colors in our holiday decorating with the exception of one year she lost her mind and decided EVERY color would have to do.
Here's the how-to video
2" thick ribbon
Gold spray paint
Trace 6 circles per ornament
Cut 5 of them exactly in half
Glue one half to the center of the full circle using hot glue
Glue two more 1/2 circles on each side of the 1st half
So it looks like this
Repeat on the other side
Spray paint the entire ball with the gold spray paint
When dry, glue along the edges and dip in glitter
Let dry for about 25 minutes
Tie a bow with the large ribbon and a loop with the small ribbon and secure it to the ornament with a long straight pin
Here you go!
