I swear I saw this made somewhere online! But I have searched high and low and can’t seem to find a tutorial anywhere. So here is my version [using Heather Bailey fabric], it’s a great way to use up all those fabric scraps. If you use the type of foam ball i used it will give you a more sewn look as the foam will collapse a little on the seams. If you use a white styrofoam ball it will be a little more flat. Have fun!

Start with any size foam ball and mark sections with a sharpie. Then cut into those lines with a utility knife.

Cut fabric strips about 1/2 inch wider and longer than your foam sections and taper them off at top and bottom.

Press fabric into lines with BACK of utility blade [or use a butter knife – if children are helping]. And repeat with each section.

Tie twine or ribbon to a floral pin and press into top of ornament!

Tie ribbon to twine to finish off ornament!
