Poinsettia Ball Ornament



For this ornament I started with a small styrofoam ball. Punched out Boho Blossoms flower, just using the 6 petal flower one which conveniently happens to be on the edge. Lay your punched out flowers on your foam piercing pad mat and press down as hard as you can in the direct center of the flower with your Empressor stylus. This will curl the flower up perfectly, it's so cool! I secured each of these onto the styrofoam ball with decorative pearl pins. For the hanger I wound some silver cording around a large silver brad and pushed it through the top, securing with some tacky glue so it doesn't just pull out when you hang it.

Yeah, but how do your fingertips feel???????I remember doing a bunch of similar things a # of years ago, and it took a week for me to not hurt!! Anyway, this RED ornament is beautiful, and what a pretty addition it would make to ANY tree! TFS!
