Red Velvet Ornament

I love the red velvet ribbon I used in this ornament. It give the ornament a beautiful texture.

Materials Used:

  • 3 inch smooth foam ball
  • 1/2 inch silver sequin pins*
  • 3/4 inch silver sequin pins*
  • 15/0 clear iridescent seed beads*
  • 5mm black sequins
  • clear iridescent glitter glue
  • 8mm red velvet ribbon
  • 6mm silver ribbon
  • 9mm silver ribbon
  • 5 dark green hologram sunbursts*
  • 5 silver embossed metallic kaleidoscope sequins*
  • 6 pearl topped corsage pins
  • 5 pearl beads
  • glue

*Purchased from Cartwright’s


  1. Pin red velvet ribbon in two perpendicular lines around the foam ball, sectioning the ball into 4 equal parts.
  2. Pin 9mm silver ribbon in two perpendicular lines, between the red ribbon, sectioning the ball into 8 equal parts.
  3. Trace all ribbon with 5mm black sequins.
  4. Paint the remaining visible foam with glitter glue. You may need several coats.
  5. Once the glitter is dry, add the hanging ribbon and bow on the top of the ornament. Thread a large silver sequin onto the corsage pin, then the hanging ribbon and then the bow, in that order. I used both 6mm silver ribbon and red velvet in the bow. Alternate two loops of red, then two or silver, and so on.
  6. Next, thread a green sunburst onto a corsage pin, then a pearl bead, then a silver kaleidoscope and pin to the center of the red velvet ribbon.
  7. Repeat step 6 on remaining 3 sides of ball and on the bottom.
