Today I am going to teach you a little known fact about Christmas that I’ll bet you’ve never heard before. The seven swans-a-swimming and the eight maids-a-milking were actually all given by my true love (and your true love, too) on the same day. It turns out that our true love liked to wait ’til the last minute. Which is SUCH a coincidence, because I just happen to be doing my Twelve Days of Christmas Ornaments Day 7 and Day 8 DIY’s on the same day, too.
My last few ornament DIY’s have been more non-traditional colors and style, so today I wanted to make one that was totally Christmas-y. :)
This one is simple, too. And, it’s a great way to use up some leftover Christmas ribbon that you might have.
Narrow ribbon. I used a little more than one 9 ft roll of 3/8″ wide ribbon. That is about as wide as I would go for a 3″ ball…any wider, and it won’t lay as flat on the ball. I also used a foot and a half or so of another ribbon to decorate the middle of the ornament, and for the hanger.
