Rag Fabric Flower Ornament {No.5}


Rag Fabric Flower Ornament
{Ornament Number Five}Materials Needed:Styrofoam Ball
Scrap Fabric
Ribbon

Begin by cutting a styrofoam ball in half with a serrated knife. {I used a three inch diameter ball}
Cut several 1 inch wide strips of scrap fabric and then cut again into 1 inch squares. {They do not have to be perfectly cut}. I used Unbleached Natural Osnaburg fabric I had on hand.
Working in small sections, squirt some white glue onto the styrofoam ball. Using the sharp end of a wooden skewer, poke the center of the fabric square into the styrofoam. Work your way around until the entire surface is covered, placing the squares fairly close to one another.
Hot Glue a piece of ribbon to the back for the hanger.All of the ornament tutorials featured are very basic and allow you to create them to your own personal taste and style ~ be creative and have fun! Enjoy!

  27. Cute idea…. Years ago we used to make these to look like “patchwork quilt” balls. Do the same, but tuck the fabric scraps into the ball as little squares, in the end it looks like patchwork! Thanks for this idea. Heidi

  32. what did you do on the back of the ornament?? continue gluing the square pieces all the way around?? please email me: [email protected]

  33. The back was left plain and can be covered with a piece of fabric or felt. If you wanted to completely cover that would work as well.
