Here's my Christmas inspiration using May Arts ribbons in festive red, green and white.


To create this Christmas ornament, all you need is a foam ball, lots of May Arts ribbons in a variety of festive colours and textures, some flowers and a string of pearls.

Simply wrap your ribbons around the foam ball, securing it with strong adhesive. Attach a loop of ribbon to the top of the ball so you can hang the ornament off your Christmas tree. Attach long strands of red and green ribbons and strings of pearls to the top and bottom of the ball, allowing them to hang freely. Attach some gold flowers to the top and bottom. Done!


Happy blog hopping and Merry Christmas!
