Polka Dots and Peppermint Ornament

Blank Styrofoam ornament balls are ideal for wrapping and pinning and Christmas crafting. Mix up the textures of your embellishments, have fun with color, and add layers to make your ornament more interesting. Here we used silver bulletin board tacks to secure the metallic cording for an industrial chic look. 

Materials needed:

  • Purchased ornament, or make your own base with a styrofoam ball, plain cording and glue
  • Kreinik Heavy #32 Braid in 003 Red and 032 Pearl (10m spool of each)
  • Kreinik Custom Corder
  • bulletin board tacks from an office supply store
  • various embellishments as desired for the top, if needed

Instructions:

  1. If you didn't purchase an ornament that was already wrapped with jute or plain cording, make your own by gluing the plain cording around the styrofoam. Let it dry thoroughly.
  2. Make your metallic cording using the #32 Braid following the instructions that come with the Custom Corder. Make it long enough to wrap as desired around your ornament. Note: if you need help, here is a video of how the corder works.
  3. Secure the metallic cording to the ball by placing tacks at about 1-inch intervals, or as desired.
  4. Add embellishments and an ornament hanger at the top.
