Make a Trio of Red Christmas Ornaments

Try these tricks for dressing up plain Christmas ball ornaments. Make sets by the dozen to decorate your entire tree or to give as gifts.

What You'll Need:

  • Red-satin ball ornaments
  • Red fake fur
  • Double-sided tape
  • 3/8-inch-wide red sheer ribbon trim with red acrylic beads

How to Make the Fur-Top Ornament

  1. Cut one piece of fur in the shape of a circle with a three-inch diameter.
  2. Cut a slit in the center of the circle, and cut a small circular hole for the top of the ornament, trimming until the fur fits over the ornament opening.
  3. Adhere the material to the ornament using double-sided tape.

How to Make the Beaded Ribbon Ornament

  1. Wrap beaded ribbon trim around the center of a red-satin ornament.
  2. Secure the ribbon to the ornament using double-sided tape, trimming tape as necessary. Use crafts glue, if needed, to secure the trim.

How to Make the Garland-Top Ornament

  1. Glue one end of the garland to the top of the ornament; let dry.
  2. Wrap the garland around the ornament using crafts glue to secure in place. (Note: Use crafts glue sparingly.)
