You've done a beautiful job!  My family has made these for years only we use fabric squares.  I do like the ribbon though, I think I may make some of these this year.

My mom and I went to the store today to try to get the parts for this project but we couldn't find the right sizes of anything.

The styrofoam balls we found were either about 16 cm around or almost 24 cm. (They were marked by their diameters in English units, 2 in or 3 in)

The ribbon we found was either 5/8 in, or 1.5 in. We got kinda frustrated and put everything back.

Where did you go to find these parts? We went to Micheal's, is there a different store that you went to? Thanks for the help!

Hi, I can't really help you with store suggestion, I live in New Zealand.

I have used 1.5 inch ribbon, and in doing so I only needed to do 2 rows, instead of 3, but instead of 2inch pieces, use 3 inches so the bottoms of the point meet the bottom of the ribbon (IYKWIM).  I have also used ribbon that was 3/4 inch and i needed to pin the next row a little closer to the top.

I dont think the smaller balls would make a difference, or even slightly larger.  The freind who showed me used balles larger than me, but these were the only ones available.  It may just mean you need to adjust the distance from the center so that none of the styrofoam is exposed, see pic below.  Or even a 4th row of ribbon on each side to cover the ball.
Hope this helps you,  ask as many questions as you need to, or pm me and i'll try to help you out.   Grin

I was on a search today to find a great gift idea, and this is the winner!  The ornaments are beautiful!
The Styrofoam balls I have are larger than the ones you used though (about 32.5 cm).  I just need to figure out how large my ribbon needs to be so I can trek off to the craft store Cheesy

Hi HippieKender , You should still be able to use the 1 inch ribbon, but you will need to do more rowrs to fill the ball.  Check out the photo abouve your post, it may bo of some help to you. Smiley

Sorry to double-post, but I finished one last night and wanted to share.


I had to fiddle with some of the ribbons so that the styrofoam ball didnt show, but in the end I like how it looks.  My fingers are a little sore from pushing in all those pins! I even went out and bought a bunch of ribbon so I could make more to give out as gifts Cheesy
Thanks so much for the tutorial!

Thanks for the tutorial!  I've seen these done with fabric as well (they look great both ways).  I'll post pictures if I get one done.  Smiley
