Spangled, sequined Christmas balls you can make
These sparkling Christmas balls look so exquisite, you won’t believe how quick and economical they are to make. Here is one Christmas project the children can join in — with happy results. Just pin spangles, sequins and beads on pre-shaped white foam balls. Add gold filigree ornaments, large jewel-like colored beads and cords for hanging.
Santa is the key here — you wind him up to turn on the tune, which appropriately is “Jingle Bells. ” Pictured below, he stands in a circle of brass bells atop a brocade and velvet ribbon- covered ball. A “gilded” three-legged stand permits the ball to be used as a decorative table ornament. It is 6-1/2 inches tall. Without stand, the ball can hang on your Christmas tree.
