What do you get when you mix navy Buffalo Check, Embroidery Hoops, and one Crazy Christmas fanatic…..well you get a beautiful combination of oversized Buffalo Check Christmas Ornament Balls!!! These balls are so stinkin’ cute, and have endless decorating possibilities.
You can mix and match fabrics, hoop colors and sizes, ribbons and bows, and hang them wherever your little heart desires. Since I have already posted on how to use them as a Snow-Woman (Part 1 of the series), click HERE for the supplies needed and tutorial on making the buffalo check hoops. Want to simplify….leave out fur ball ornaments and fur ball picks (scroll down for pictures).
Now, that you have seen the tutorial….
here they are as Christmas Ornament Balls
ADDING RIBBONS, BOWS, FUR BALLS, AND BALL PICKS
Once the 3 hoop are done, we cans add the ribbon, bows, and fur balls/picks.
The fur ornament balls have a clear hanger that you will attach to the tying ribbon of the bow – click here for Bow Tutorial. I used the navy ribbon for the single fur ball and dot gold ribbon for the double fur balls.
I used the same gold ribbon for the small hoop and large hoop (with 4 loops each) bows, but just made a larger bow to fit scale of large hoop. I stuck the fur balls picks into the right and left sides of the bow.
I used the dot bow from the snow-woman tutorial for the medium hoop.
Here are the ribbon lengths, and the navy ribbon is 2.5″wide. You can choose whatever width you want. I used the navy ribbon to add contrast, and to cover more of the stair wall.
Where to put nails or hangers:
1) Starting with LARGE HOOP: go (19.5″ Right, 4″ Down)……. for 2 fur balls
2) From 2 FUR BALLS: go (12″ Up, 8″ Right) …..for small hoop
3) From LARGE HOOP again: go (18″ Up, 8″ Right) for medium ball
4) From LARGE HOOP again: go (11″ Left, 10″ Up)
WANT TO SIMPLIFY
If you want to use the 3 ornaments only…. put the small ornament into 2 fur balls spot and lose the other goodies 🙂
YOU ARE DONE!!
ENJOY YOUR BUFFALO CHECK CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS!!
Have a Very Merry Christmas!!! Love & Hugs 🙂
