Coffee Filter Snowball Ornament {DIY Tutorial}


HMA's Twelve Crafty Days of Christmas are over and Christmas itself has come and gone, but I can't help but share one more DIY tutorial before I lay the season to rest.

If you're a devoted follower, you probably saw my tutorial for the Coffee Filter Snowman I like to refer to as Java Jo Snow.  It was while I was making Java Jo that I came up with the idea to make coffee filter snowball ornaments to adorn our Christmas tree.

You may have already seen them if you read my recent post, A {Johnson} Christmas Poem. :)


Here is what you will need
{no snow required!}
Small Styrofoam balls {I used a package of six}
Coffee Filters {I used around 800 to make all six ornaments}
Hot Glue Gun 
Glue Sticks
Safety Pins
White Ribbon {or any color of your choice really}


Here is how you make them
{a lot of time and patience IS required so flip on the TV or some good music!}

Step 1: Fold a coffee filter in half, then in half again, then in half again.

Step 2: Roll up the coffee filter from the tip about 1/3 of the way.

Step 3: Put hot glue along bottom of coffee filter and secure onto styrofoam ball in rows. 

 Step 4: Repeat process {for what feels like a gazillion times} until the ball in completely covered.

Step 5: Thread ribbon through safety pin and tie the ends together.

Step 6: Stick safety pin down into your Styrofoam ball.

Step 7: Hang the snowball ornaments on your tree, then sit back and relax...you deserve it!
