Candy Cane Christmas Fabric Tree Ornament Weekend Project

I was having some fun with the Christmas fabrics. I LOVE both sets but I think I am more partial to the "Candy Cane Christmas" one. I think it's just those cute little polka dots that catch my eye.
To make these you will need:
1-1/2" Styrofoam ball
Fabric cut 6" x 6"
1/2" grosgrain ribbon
Cord for hanging (I used Linen thread here)
Sucker sticks

Insert the sucker stick into the Styrofoam ball. You want it to go in about 1/3 of the way. You may want to use Styrofoam glue here. I first tried a glue dot thinking it would hold but it didn't. I ended up using craft glue after I got the fabric on.

Next find the center of the fabric and set it at the top of the Styrofoam ball. Wrap it around the ball and tie it with the ribbon. Tie the ribbon in a bow. This is when I glued the stick to the fabric with craft glue. And then I attached a hanging cord. I used a piece of linen thread. I threaded a needle with it and just took a stitch on the top and tied the ends together.

These are very easy and SO much fun to make. They will look SO adorable on any Christmas tree or even on top of gift packages!

You can do these as a Make N Take, a Craft Fair item, a fun item for the kids to help with and even a Stamp Camp project!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
