Patchwork Ornaments and Snowman Can's

I bought a pack of 3 inch Styrofoam balls as the main part of the ornament.
I cut up pieces of fabric into squares about 1 1/2 inch to 2 inches. Then I took my scissors and pressed the fabric into the Styrofoam. I just kept adding more pieces until I had covered the whole ball. Then I put a small bit of hot glue on the end of the ribbon and pressed it into the ball between two pieces of fabric.
I made 4 of them, I made these for someone else, I can't wait to make some Christmas ones!
These snowman can's are SO much fun! They are pretty quick to make and can be filled with all sorts of goodies! I used an empty veggie can, hot glued white felt around it. Then hot glued the red felt and 3/4 inch around the top. Then I hot glued a piece of Christmas fabric around the bottom and top to cover the ends of the felt. For the nose, I cut a small circle and twisted it into the nose, then hot glued it on with two black buttons as the eyes. I used black fabric paint for the mouth and eye brows.
The ornaments and snowmen took about 20 minutes each to make. They each cost about 60-70 cents. A super fun and cute gift!
