“I think mom, Gail Lee Martin made fabric balls like this one Christmas. Reminds me of the many Christmas projects both Dad and Mom worked together on. Like the yarn candy cane and the Santa head. Both were very nicely put together. They had to start early in the year to get them all made.” – Cynthia Ross
Here’s a YouTube video tutorial for making these no-sew folded fabric ornament balls. They give a quilted look but there’s no glue or sewing required. Just cut, fold and pin the fabric.
Here are more of Gail and Clyde’s Christmas crafts:
Make a Candy Cane Wall Hanging from Yarn. This is an earlier blog post, in case you missed it. It uses yarn to create a huge candy can to hang on your door or on the wall.
This reindeer ornament is made from gluing 3 wooden clothespins together. Two serve as the legs and the one pointing upwards makes the antlers. Glue on felt to serve as the tail, the nose and a bit of Christmas holly. Some googly eyes and a string to hang it. Really cute!
I’ll post Mom’s complete instructions for this tomorrow. She wrote about it for the eHow site.
You don’t need much explanation for this candy cane reindeer. It’s pretty clear how to assemble it. It’s a fun project for kids during the holiday season.
