Victorian Style Ornament

I was inspired by a pack of buttons I bought recently. In the pack of miscellaneous buttons were some neat cameos. I ended up making this fancy satin Victorian style ornament.

It’s quite simple to make so I thought I would share it with all of you.

The 2nd ornament I made for the video is pink instead of blue and the cameo buttons are slightly different than the ones on the blue ornament.

Tools and Materials Needed:

  • ball point pen
  • measuring tape
  • craft knife
  • craft glue
  • tucking tool (I use a straight upholstery needle)
  • 7cm diameter foam ball
  • satin fabric
  • 2 cameo buttons
  • metallic craft cord**
  • 5mm sequins
  • two 10mm sequins
  • 9mm wide satin ribbon
  • 6mm wide satin ribbon
  • 3/4 inch sequin pins*
  • at least 62 pearl headed pins
  • two 10mm pearl beads
  • ten 5mm pearl beads
  • 0/15 seed beads*

*Purchased at Cartwright’s
**The craft cord I use is hard to find outside of Japan. I sell it in my Etsy shop.

I suggest using light colored fabric so you can see your equator markings through the fabric.
