Now if you can’t watch the video or have a hard time with the instructions, here is the written version:
- Wrap twine around the Styrofoam ball as a guide.
- Use the foam tool or a butter knife to score the foam beside the twine.
- Remove twine and make score line deeper with the tool.
- Repeat process to get three lines that go all the way around the ball and are approximately evenly spaced.
- Lay plaid or burlap over one section that you have created. Stuff the fabric into the line a little all the way around.
- Use scissors to trim fabric as close to ball as possible.
- Stuff fabric into the line completely all the way around.
- Repeat for all sections alternating between plaid and burlap.
- Use twine and hot glue to cover up where all of the fabrics meet. This will also help to secure everything.
- Use an additional piece of twine for a hanger at the top. Secure with hot glue.
- The plaid and burlap ornaments are ready for your tree!
