Christmas is coming and it is time for the Christmas make with my friends. This was the first time they had been in my new studio and I was excited to see what they all made of it.
We made Christmas decorations from polystyrene balls and wide ribbon.
These are the samples I made
Sue had a great time making matching decorations
And these are all of the decorations we made in the evening.
It was a very productive time.
Carefully score the polystyrene balls into 8 segments using a craft knife and a cutting mat.
Cut a piece of ribbon slightly longer than the distance from the top to the bottom
From the centre of the ball, gently push the edge of the ribbon into one of the cuts using a butter knife.
Repeat on the other side of the ribbon
Trim the excess away at the top and the bottom and push the ribbon into the polystyrene ball.
Take another length of ribbon and repeat to cover the next segment. Repeat this until the ball is covered.
Add cord along the segments and a hanging loop to finish
