DIY Christmas Ornament 4: Ribbon Filled

Today is my first day back at work after almost two weeks off and I’m physically sick about it. Starting at about noon yesterday, I started feeling a lot of anxiety and dread so this one is easier than most, but still quite lovely. I really like this idea for kids since there are no sharp objects and they can pick their favorite ribbon.

I found beautiful thin, glittery ribbon at Michaels for $1 a roll. If you go looking for something similar at your Michael’s, I did not find these in the ribbon aisle.I found both of these in a bin near the stamps and scrapbooking supplies.

Step 2:

Ok, here’s the easy part. Thread the entire roll of ribbon into the ornament.

Put the cap back on.

I told you it was easy.

The pink ribbon was more of a garland wrapped around wire, making it more difficult to thread into the ornament. However, it filled the entire ornament better than the ribbon and is really beautiful.

Sorry for the window glare…I’m still trying to get better at the pictures.
