As far as size goes, you can make them in any size. I used furry ribbon as my material, so I was limited by the width of the ribbon. However, if you buy faux fur by the yard at the fabric store, you will be able to make any size that you want!

It’s really easy to make these ornaments – even if you aren’t a big sewer. All you need to know how to do is baste.

Basting is sewing in and out in a pretty loose stitch. It’s a straight line – if you accordion fabric and press your needle thru the folds, that results in a baste.

You are basically making little drawstring pouches and filling them with pillow stuffing. No stuffing, no problem – use cotton balls!

I added an embroidery floss loop before hanging my pom poms on the tree. You could also sew the ball onto metal hardware to attach this to a keychain or hair bow.

I hope you see the possibilities in this simple sewing project!
