    Christmas Ball Ornaments

    Music Sphere Ornament

    By: Shelley for 7 Layer Studio

    Make this ornament for your tree and watch as everyone sings its praises! You won’t believe how easy it is to create this craft. Mod Podge, decorative papers and glitter make this a standout Christmas ornament.

    Materials:

     3" or 3.5" Styrofoam balls

     Bamboo skewers

     Music note napkins (I bought mine at PianoSupplies.com), cut into small squares. The squares you see pictured here are too large for this size of ball. After this picture was taken I cut them in half again once I started working. Squares that are 1.5" would be ideal.

     Mod Podge (matte finish) and a chip brush or equivalent, plus a little container for the Mod Podge.

     Wordstrips: o "Forever and

    Ever....Hallelujah..." wordstrip o "Peace, Good Will Toward

    Men" wordstrip

    o "For Unto Us a Child is Born..." wordstrip

     Cut them into the strips, taking care to preserve the black line which outlines the red. A paper cutter or ruler + rotary cutter are recommended to keep the lines straight.

     NOTE: Many home printers have ink that smears when wet. For best results, go to a commercial printer or make sure your printer ink doesn't smear. If it does, just let ink dry at least 2 days before attempting this project.

     Clear glitter and a tray/large sheet of paper to catch excess glitter

     Ribbon: Skinny 1/8" for the hanger (9" length per ornament) and 1/4" for the bow (about 12" length per ornament).

     Glue gun or craft glue

    Instructions: 1.) Insert 1 or 2 bamboo skewers into ball. Brush a generous coat of Mod Podge over ball and lay the pieces of napkin down one at a time, brushing a thin layer of Mod Podge over top of napkin piece after each one is put down. A little overlapping is necessary to ensure that none of the Styrofoam is peeking through. 2.) When ball is entirely coated, place bamboo skewer + ball into a heavy vase or jar so it can dry without touching anything.

    3.) When ball has completely dried, brush a thick coat of Mod Podge around the midsection of ball. Wrap word strip all the way around UPSIDE DOWN, trimming ends if necessary so that only about 1/4" is overlapping. Take care to center the strip on the "equator" of sphere in relation to where the skewers are so that the ball won't hang crooked like some of mine did.

    4.) Carefully brush Mod Podge over the strip, using the metal part of the brush to help press down any edges that don't want to conform to the curve of the ball. If you have used a printer with smudgy ink, wipe away any pink-tinted Mod Podge on the music part of the ball before it dries. Otherwise you will have a pink ball. Let dry.

    5.) When ball has dried, coat entire ball again with Mod Podge and sprinkle clear glitter over entire sphere. Don't worry about how cloudy it looks here - it will become clear and legible when it dries.

    6.) When completely dry, remove bamboo skewer(s) and use the tip of skewer to push the raw ends of skinny ribbon into hole. Squirt glue into hole to secure skinny ribbon.

    7.) Tie a little bow with the 1/4" ribbon. Using another dap of glue, attach bow to ball right at the base of the skinny ribbon.

    Snow Ball Ornament

    By: Sarah for Sarah Lou

    You don’t have to step outside to take a walk in

    a winter wonderland. Use a Styrofoam ball, pins

    and felt to craft a cute Christmas ornament.

    This is an easy craft that beginners will love.

    Materials:

     A million flat head pins

     Styrofoam ball

     Ribbon, enough to from a small loop

     Glue (not totally necessary, I like the added protection)

     Felt, I just used some acrylic that we had lying around in the kids craft box

     A pointy thing ( end
