The list of materials you'll need is (as usual) a very simple one. You probably have most of the supplies laying around your house already!

Ready to get started? Let's take a look at what you'll need:

Homemade Christmas Ornaments


  • Two styrofoam balls, one medium sized and one small
  • One toothpick
  • A piece of ribbon (you can also use a strip of fabric or felt)
  • Black marker (fine tip)
  • Pipecleaners - orange and white (one small orange piece for the nose, another piece of white pipecleaner for the loop at the top in order to hang)
  • Sequins (we used three)
  • One thin stick or twig
  • Glue
  • Scissors


    1. Connect the two strofoam balls using the toothpick as shown in picture.

    2. Wrap a piece of ribbon in between the two balls, as shown. You may want to glue the ribbon to the styrofoam in order for it to stay in place.
