Christmas time is right around the corner and we are getting ready to deck the halls. Since we’re all staying home more, my family and I are going to decorate a little earlier. Why not enjoy the beauty of the season a little longer?
Today I am sharing a tutorial for an easy and pretty DIY ribbon wrapped Christmas ornament. This ornament is such a great craft project because it is inexpensive, quick and easy to make, and can be made for variety of home decor styles. The ribbon and holiday pick you choose with determine the style of your ornament.
What supplies do you need to make a DIY Ribbon Wrapped Christmas Ornament?
- ball shaped ornament (you can use a styrafoam one or a paper mache one)
- 7/8 inch wide ribbon in your choice of pattern.
- 3/8 inch coordinating ribbon (I used red and black gingham ribbon.)
- Christmas pick of holly and berries
- glue gun
- glue sticks (I like to use these Gorilla Glue Hot Glue Sticks.)
- wire cutters
How Do You Make a DIY Ribbon Wrapped Christmas Ornament?
Begin at the top of the ornament. Carefully use a dab of hot glue to secure the ribbon to the top of the ornament.
When the ribbon has been wrapped around the ornament, secure the opposite end with a small dab of glue. Cut the ribbon.
Repeat this process, slightly overlapping each ribbon over the previous one, until the entire ornament is covered. Your ribbon will cross on the bottom.
Next, use your wire cutters, carefully trim the excess wire from the holly and berries Christmas pick.
Push the wire Christmas pick pieces into place and carefully secure with a dab of hot glue. Be careful not to burn your fingers! I recently ordered these finger caps to protect my fingers from being burned. I can’t wait for them to arrive!
Add a piece of your thinner ribbon around the stem of the pics. This will hide the glue and stems of the pic.
Lastly, hang the ornament on your tree, or display as part of a vignette and enjoy! I think it will look great next to my Christmas Ornament Reverse Canvas. This ornament would also make a great gift too!
