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.
