Beaded Styrofoam Ball Ornament


Bronze Tip Medal for All Time! 59 Tips

Don't throw away those old satin covered Styrofoam Christmas balls. They can be recycled into beautiful ornaments. If you happen to find some old ones at a thrift store, make sure they are Styrofoam. You can either leave the satin on or remove it and use the plain white Styrofoam ball.

You will need:

  • various sizes of Styrofoam balls (if you start small, you can finish them a lot faster)
  • large box of medium length straight pins
  • bugle beads in your color preference
  • E beads in your color preference
  • seed beads in your color preference
  • large sequins in your color preference

Thread a sequin, an E bead, a bugle bead, and then a seed bead onto a straight pin and stick it into the Styrofoam ball. Keep covering the ball until it is totally covered. (You can use the old hanger to rehang the finished ornament.) Use your imagination with different sized beads and make each ornament your own creation.

My sister and I made dozens of these one year and had the best time. :)
