Clear Glass OrnamentRibbon I found beautiful thin, glittery ribbon at Michaels for $1 a roll. If you go looking for something similar at your Michael’s, I did not find these in the ribbon aisle.I found both of these in a bin near the stamps and scrapbooking supplies.

Step 2: Ok, here’s the easy part. Thread the entire roll of ribbon into the ornament. Step 3: Put the cap back on. I told you it was easy. The pink ribbon was more of a garland wrapped around wire, making it more difficult to thread into the ornament. Sorry for the window glare…I’m still trying to get better at the pictures. There you have it, two lovely ornaments for about 5 minutes of work. Project Cost Breakdown (per Ornament): Clear Ornaments (JoAnn’s Fabric) = $.50 each (I purchased a set of 6 for $3 which was 50% off) Ribbon (Michael’s) = $1 Total Project Cost: $1.50 Linking To: Centsational Girl, Craft-O-Maniac Like this: Like Loading...

Styrofoam Ball (use any size you wish)SequinsSeed BeadsSequin Pins or Straight Pins (sequin pins are typically shorter than sewing straight pins)Screw EyeOrnament Hanger or Ribbon Step 2: Unless you are pinning the ornament in a single color, you’ll want to make a general plan on where to start. Once I had my plan in place, I started pinning. I started with the center row and I pinned three rows of turquoise. Then I did two rows of White on either side of the turquoise. Next I pinned one row of light green… …followed by another two rows of white sequins. Finally I finished the ornament with the green sequins. Step 3: Be sure to leave a small hole on one end so you can attach a hanger. Step 4: Attach some ribbon so you can hang the ornament. Project Cost Breakdown (per Ornament): Styrofoam Ball (Michaels) = $1 3 colors of sequins (Hobby Lobby) = $6 Ribbon (Already Owned) = $0.
