Budget Friendly Ornaments

We are another Friday closer to Christmas!!  Can you believe it is about one month away??
We are continuing with a Ribbon Resource hop that is all about budget friendly projects.
Here is this weeks line up:

And of course there is a prize so make sure you comment along the way and back at the Ribbon Resource blog and you could win some RIBBON!

These ornaments are made with some plastic craft bulbs I had leftover from a project or two and I used some bits of ribbon that were perfect for the holiday.

Here is what you will need:

May Arts Ribbon
1/4" Gold Sparkly Ribbon
3/8" Solid Two Toned Wired Ribbon Green
3/8" Solid Two Toned Wired Ribbon Red
1/4" glitter Metallic/Silver Wired Ribbon
3/16" Red Beads/Wired Red
1-3/8" Metallic/Irredescent/Wired Light Green 

Other items used:
Jingle Bells
Wood Dowl

Ribbon spirals are the perfect 'filler'.

You can add any kind of accent you have available.  I used bells.

One spiral or more...

And even a big bow to finish it off.

These are perfect to decorate your own tree or as holiday hostess gifts.,,and so fun to make.

Until next time...wrap yourself in ribbon.
