How To Decoupage Fabric Ornament Balls
If you love making ornament for the holidays. You will love making these easy fabric ornament balls using leftover fabric and glue.
DIY Fabric Ornament Balls:
One of my favorite recycle crafts is decoupaging. You can decoupage almost anything, paper, napkins fabric, and the possibilities are endless. In this tutorial I will show you how to decoupage fabric ornament ball which I cut up in squares.
- Clear plastic ball ornaments ( You can use cardboard balls too.)
- Fabric (You can use any lightweight fabric such as cotton.)
- Aleen’s Decoupage glue (Love this glue but any decoupage glue will do.)
- Scissors (You want the scissor to be sharp to cut off small threads.)
How To Make The Fabric Ornament Balls:
Cut up the fabric with a super sharp scissors in squares. Some the squares can be bigger, they don’t have to be exactly alike. But if our prefer all the same that’s perfectly fine too. I did a mixture of different square shapes and I like the look.
With the sponge apply glue onto the one side of the fabric. That side should be completely covered in glue. ITs important the edges be saturated so it won’t come up.
Apply one square at a time. Smooth out any bubbles. Do this until the entire ball is covered with the fabric. Make sure you take off the top hanger off. position the square as close to the top of the neck of the ball.
When you are finished glueing al the fabric. Put back the hanger and hand to dry somewhere. Don’t hang on the Christmas tree because the ornament can stick to the tree. Hang below a chandelier or lighting fixture.
I am so happy with the balls. I can’t wait to add them to my tree. By making these ornament I now have enough to fill my larger Christmas tree with all my hand made ornaments I made the last few years.

I’m wondering if a person could use paper napkins in place of fabric.
Yes Napkins would be perfect too.
These are so pretty! I have to endeavour to do more decoupage next year!
Somwetines we craft and we don’t even know that we are decoupaging you probably did it and not realized it. I was gluing different sized sheets of paper onto a gift box and that decoupaging and didn’t even realized it.
I would never have thought of decoupaging fabric onto inexpensive ornaments but it looks sooooo good and what a great way to customize them to suit a decor style.
