25 Days of Christmas Ornaments DAY 1

I had such fun with this last year, that I'm doing it again.
Although we had such a fun and busy Thanksgiving weekend, I almost forgot to do today's project and it's currently drying.
I will share a couple of photos to show you the process, and then I will add the final photo tomorrow after it's complete.
I got this idea from Martha Stewart (although I can't imagine that she was the first to come up with it).
1 styrofoam ball
fabric strips (1/2"-1" thick)
fabric glue
I cut out the strips (around 12" in length).  The length varies depending on the size of the ball, and I wanted to be sure each piece overlapped with itself.
I dabbed a little glue on each end of fabric and wrapped it around the ball, layering one piece over the next. 


And here's the finished product

I loved making it and my girls helped me.  Jamie (age 7) helped me with the gluing, and Paige (age 9) cut cloth strips.  I could see myself filling a tree with these.  Accept that I am partial to glittery ornaments.  Hmmm....maybe I could add a few sequins or rhinestones?
