Here is one way of making your own fabric covered versions to pretty up the tree.
Polystyrene balls (the ones I used were 50mm)
Coordinating fabric pieces
Matching 5mm ribbon
Pencil & felt marker
Sharp knife to cut polystyrene
Butter knife (I used my pocket knife)
Gold stars (ones with the hole in the middle) or bead
Elastic band that fits snugly around polystyrene ball
Template cut out of card (see pic below) – a pointy ended oval shape 9.5cm long & 5cm at the widest point (this will cover 50mm diametre balls)
Using template, mark and cut out 4 pieces of fabric for each ball. Depending on the fabric pattern you may want to position the template to get the part of the print you want. I cut 2 red print and 2 white print for each bauble.
Cover up the raw edges of the fabric using the ribbon. Start at what will be the top of the bauble and run the ribbon around one circumference line.
Take a gold star (or bead) and thread it onto a pin. Tie off some gold thread and then poke the pin through the knot.
....or box it up with all the others you will make as gifts!
