How To Make A Ribbon Christmas Ornament

I am participating in the 2018 Ornament Exchange hosted by My Pinadventures. The lovely lady I am partnered with is Gail Griffin from Purple Hues and Me. So obviously, I made her a purple ornament. I really enjoyed making this ornament and I hope she likes it as much as I did making it.

Begin by cutting strips of each color of ribbon to 3" lengths. The video that accompanies this tutorial will show the process and have a few tips included.

cut and roll ribbon for ribbon ornament
Roll the ribbon strips around your finger and use a straight pin to place it onto the styrofoam ball.

Place each rolled ribbon onto the styrofoam ball at different angles.

Use a longer strip of ribbon to hang the ball from your tree.

While it was made for a Christmas Tree, it would also look nice hanging from the center of a doorway the rest of the year!

Cute and as easy as can be and very good looking. Pinning to my ornament board.


This is really pretty! It's so fun to participate in the Ornament Exchange each year and see all of the different ideas people come up with!


I featured your ribbon ornament at the Best of the Weekend Link Party tonight! Thank you for sharing it with us!


This looks like such a fun ornament to make! I have a ton of ribbon and this would be a great way to use them up. Pinned.


This ornament is so pretty and perfect to customize to the person you are giving it to or to your favorite color. Just lovely.


This is so pretty, looks a bit complicated for my lack of skill, but I am going to attempt it#bestoftheweekend@_karendennis


This is really pretty, Janet. How great that you made it in purple especially for Gail!


That is so so pretty! I have never seen anything like this before either. Very creative. Pinned.


This is so pretty and the possibilities of color combos is endless~


Love it, can't believe that such a beautiful and unique ornament was made just using ribbon, very clever!! #2018ornamentexchange
