D-I-Y: Loopy Christmas Balls

Time Required:
~ 20 mins

What you’ll need:
Paper (I printed off double-sided sheet music from the internet)
Styrofoam ball (I used about 1.5” balls)
Dressmaker’s pins

Cut strips of paper. 
Using the ruler and pencil, mark cutting lines if needed (I did)

Erase any visible pencil markings

Cut the strips into about 3” sections

Pin the bottom loop onto the styrofoam ball

Pin folded strips to the styrofoam ball

Once finished, you can fill in any gaps with smaller paper loops. 

Pin (and/or glue) ribbon to the top of the ornament

I used narrower paper strips (3/8”) for this tutorial, and thicker strips on my first trial that was photographed on spruce tree (1/2” first pic).  I think the thicker strips worked better (& looks better).
