Decorative Trimmings Holiday Ornaments How To:
Place a pin to mark the North and South poles of the foam ball.
Remove the North pin and lay Decorative Trimmings trim across the top of the foam ball, secure with the pin.
Wrap trim across the surface of the ball, remove the South pin and secure the trim.
Wrap the trim across the back of the ball and lay it next to the North pin. Secure with an additional pin.
Continue wrapping the decorative trimmings trim moving over from the last row and adding pins to secure until the entire surface of the ball has been covered. Note: Due to the wrapping of the trim around the N and S points of the ball, the ornament shape will turn into an oval.
Add a drop of glue to the end of the decorative trimmings trim and insert it in behind the last piece of trim.
Cut a 10 inch piece of trim. Form a loop, overlapping the two ends and insert a pin through both ends. Add a drop of glue to the end of the pin and insert it into the top of the wrapped ornament to serve as the hanger. Let dry.
Cut a length of decorative trimmings trim equal to the center width of the foam ball plus 1 inch. Wrap trim around the center of the ball and secure with pins, overlapping the trim neatly. Add a drop of glue if necessary.
Using a needle and thread; insert a double strand of thread through the eye of the needle, do not knot thread. Insert the needle through a small bead, bringing the ends of the thread back through the eye of the needle. Thread on additional beads using all four strands of thread. Stitch into the wrapped trim to secure the beads to the bottom of the ornaments Trim excess threads and add a drop of glue to secure the stitching.
