Sequined Snowball Ornament

It snowed! It snowed! 
Let's celebrate by creating a quick and easy
Sequined Snowball Ornament.

Don't you love waking up to a winter wonderland?

 Let's create one indoors, too!

 We'll capture both the crystalline nature of the snowflakes and the effect of a soft blanket of snow with this sequined snowball ornament.

Here are the supplies you'll need: 
batting, small styrofoam ball, straight pins, snowflake sequins, and some decorative wire.

Simply wrap a square of batting around the styrofoam ball, gathering it at the top with a bit of hot glue. Allow the batting to tuft out a bit. Then randomly pin the snowflake sequins to the top of the ornament.

Make a loop out of the metal wire and poke it down into the styrofoam ball with a bit of glue so that it has staying power. 

I love how soft it looks, yet the top glimmers with a dusting of newly fallen snowflakes.

 Hang it on your Christmas tree... surely you still have a spot you can squeeze it in!

Mine is among the sparkling forest of tinfoil tree ornaments!

Once you've made your Sequin Snowball Ornament...

Grab some cocoa...

Wrap some gifts {the last-minute Paperless way!!}, 
                               and then...

Prop your feet up by the fire....

 and Let it Snow
                   Let it Snow
                               Let it Snow!

Your ornaments are beautiful! I love the snowy effect, and my son would have loved to see that one hanging from our tree, since we don't get snow here in Georgia. Maybe next year...
