12 Days of Giving – craft tutorials, and designer interviews during December 2014

Christmas balls, that is, on our Holiday Ball Hop!  Smoothfoam is perfect for making ball-shaped ornaments because the foam is fairly solid, with a smooth surface. You can pin things to it, glue, decoupage, paint… there are so many possibilities that just can be done with general floral foam balls. Today, I created a very simple, vintage inspired ball-shaped button ornament:

You can make a BUNCH of these to hang on your tree or skip the ribbon hanger and fill a vase or bowl with the balls as a decoration. I think they'd look great in an apothecary jar!
