I saw an adorable ornament on Pinterest made with flowers from a paper punch pinned onto a Styrofoam ball. I thought a ball covered in snowflakes would be even more Christmas-y....that and I have a snowflake punch, some nice blue scrapbook paper, and a spare Styrofoam ball on hand. I love crafts where I don't have to buy anything!
This project requires:
a Styrofoam ball (I bought mine at Wal-mart)
a shaped paper punch (mine is a snowflake, but you could do stars or flowers--whatever you prefer)
a ribbon to hang the ornament
and a scissors
After I gathered my supplies, I punched a bunch of snowflakes out of some light blue scrapbook paper. I had planned on using white card stock to contrast with the blue, but the thickness was a bit much for my cheap paper punch (which was most likely picked up in the dollar bin at Michael's), so I ended up using plain old copy paper. It was a bit flimsy but worked fine.
After you've punched a bunch of snowflakes, start pinning them in a random but alternating pattern. Try to get the pin in the center of the snowflake to keep things looking tidy.
When you're finished filling in with snowflakes, pin a ribbon to the top of your ornament so you can hang it from your tree.
