I chose some fun fancy fabric remnants that I have been hoarding just waiting for the right project for. I love the traditional red and green sequin material paired with the soft faux fur fabric.

Wrap the fabric around the ball adding more hot glue periodically to keep the fabric in place. If you run out, begin again with a new strip.

2. Wrap all of the balls with fabric.

3. Use a sharp pair of scissors to to pierce a hole in the top of the ornament through the fabric and the ball.

4. Hot glue the ribbon you will be using for hanging the ornaments to the length of a brad. Once dry, place a dab of hot glue where you pierced the hole in the ball then push the brad with the ribbon into the hole and press firmly. Cut the ribbons at varying lengths.
