Christmas Decor...

I have this white dish on my kitchen table that I usually have a vase of flowers in. Well...I need something Christmas-y since the rest of my house is decked out. :) But I wanted to make something, of course, since I was sure I had the supplies to do something fun. I decided to make some decorative balls in holiday colors. I did use all retired ribbon for this project...but any ribbon you have would work. Here is a picture of them...

And a closer picture...And more pics to follow. But just quickly how I did it...these are just wrapped Styrofoam balls. I cut ribbon long enough to go around the ball. And then would just pin the ribbon on one end of the ball. (The same end for all the ribbon pieces.) Once I had one ribbon down, went on to another ribbon piece. And just kept going around the ball until they were covered. I like some balls more than others. I want to try this with fabric also. I have NO idea how many ribbon pieces I used. It varied depending on the width of the ribbon. You don't want to use too thick of ribbon or it will get all weird. Anyway...here are some more pics...
Hope you enjoy! Thanks so much for visiting!!!

That looks great, I have a dish just like that and I love it but have never figured out a cute way to use if other then for food. I am going to have to do this.
