DIY: Felt Ball Ornament (Updated Photos)

 It's that time of the year again when everyone shops, travel, entertain and
decorate for the Holidays.  This year I wanted to add white to my Christmas tree,
 so I opted to make my own white felt ornaments.  Do you remember the scrunch flower tutorial?

In this tutorial you may use that method or use the method below to make the scrunch flower.
Lets begin.
(1)  You will need the following:

       (2)   Using your round template/cup, trace circles on the felt.  Cut out your circles.  {To make several of these ornaments, you will need lots of circles.  Each of these flowers has about 5-6 felt circles.}   Make sure you cut a smaller circle for each flower that you make, it will serve as a base.

       (3)   Place a drop of glue on the center of your large circle and fold in half.

       (4)   Take your folded circle and fold again in the shape of an "s" or use the method on the previous tutorial.  Either one works fine.  The "s" form gives it more depth.

(5) Glue the folded pedal to the base and continue gluing your folded pieces 
around the base until it's filled.

(6) Place the top pedal to cover the open center.

(7)  When done, this is what your flowers will look like.  Repeat for more felt ball ornaments.

(8) Turn your flowers over to their back.

(9) Cut a piece(s) of ribbon; glue one end of the ribbon to the back of the flower 
using one drop of glue.  Glue the other end of the ribbon over the glued ribbon to hold it in place.

(10) Add glue to the back side of another flower and lay over the ribbon & flower.

(11) Press firmly to make sure it is glued properly and evenly.

(12)  This method should form your scrunched felt ball.

You may spray it gently with adhesive and add sparkle to your ornament(s) with fine glitter.
And there you have it, a Scrunched Felt Ornament.

Happy Crafting!!
