Yay, for Christmas time. I have been in the Christmas spirit for a few weeks now, especially after going to the Christmas in the south craft show and the Southern Christmas Show, so I had my husband pull out all of my Christmas décor a bit early this year. After going through all of my Christmas decorations I decided to do something a little different this year, I am going to have a Rustic Christmas theme with all sorts of burlap, twill and linen with a little bit of glitz and glam. I have tons of glitz and glam ornaments and décor but I was lacking on the rustic side, so I decided to turn some of my silver balls into Rustic Pom Ornaments. I absolutely LOVE these Rustic Pom ornaments and wanted to share a tutorial with everyone. I made these using an old linen shower curtain; however I made several burlap Pom Christmas Ornaments as well. I am also planning to do a Christmas Ornament giveaway for a set of three Rustic Pom Ornaments, as well as a few other Christmas Giveaways, so please check back for an update on when the giveaways will start.
Here is what you need to make your own Rustic Pom Ornaments
- Ball Ornament
- Hot Glue
- Twine or ribbon
Step 1: Cut fabric into squares that are about 2″ x 2″ in size. I thought it was easier to cut all of my fabric before I started gluing them onto the ornament. Depending on how full you want it to be you will need between 75-100 squares. I know it sounds like a lot but I folded my fabric so that I cut 4 layers of fabric at once and it didn’t take but about 5-10 minutes to cut enough fabric squares to cover 1 ornament.
Step 2: Before I started gluing the fabric onto the ornament I tied a piece of twine through the top of the ornament (this is for hanging)
Step 3: Take a piece of fabric and pinch it together at the center of the fabric
Step 4: Squeeze the fabric so that it looks like a flower. Then Glue it onto the top of the ornament
Continue Gluing the fabric around the top of the ornament
Keep gluing the fabric onto the ornament. If the fabric doesn’t scrunch down like you’d like after you have glued it onto the ornament you can place a tiny dot of glue inside the fabric and scrunch it together (sorry I didn’t take a picture of this part)
When you get done gluing all the fabric onto the ornament hold it up to make sure it looks the way you’d like. That way if there are pieces that are to long you can take your scissors and snip the ends or if you think it has a few bare spots you can add additional pieces to make it look more full.
So, what do you think? If you like this ornament don’t forget to check back for my Christmas Giveaways, I’m going to be giving away a set of three!
