DIY Christmas Ornaments: String or Twine Balls

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  I made some more Christmas ornaments this past weekend that I am excited to share with you today.  These string covered ornaments were easy to make and came together fairly quickly.  I made six ornaments in less than two hours while watching TV.  These probably would have come together even faster, if I had not kept getting sucked into the shows.

Twine OrnamentsThis is the third post in my DIY Christmas Ornaments series.  So if you are just tuning in and missed my earlier ornament posts, here are the links to my clothespin reindeer and salt dough snowflakes.  I have quite a few additional ornaments that I am looking forward to sharing with you in the next couple of weeks.  To make sure that you don’t miss any of my DIY ornament posts, please consider subscribing to my blog by clicking on the envelope icon to the right and entering your email address or following me on Pinterest.
