Supplies needed:

Aluminum foil
Yarn (in a couple of festive colors)
Glue (optional)


Tear a foot of foil off the roll and scrunch into a ball. For larger ornaments, overlay another sheet of foil. Shape in hands to form a sphere.

Wrap yarn around ball twice and secure with a knot. Continue wrapping as desired. Once yarn design is complete, tie off with another knot. You may wish to use glue to secure the end.

Finish by tying on a loop of yarn for hanging.
