How To Make A Ribbon Christmas Ornament

A tutorial for making a beautiful 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.

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

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!
