Leslie says, "I wanted colorful, original, decorative Christmas balls to put on my hutch in my entry. These quickly came to mind as I was punching different sizes of scalloped circles for another project I was working on. They turned out JUST like I wanted. Not to mention...they are SO easy to make, look SO cute and festive in a bowl, or even hanging on the Christmas tree! I hope you enjoy creating your very own decorative Christmas balls for you or anyone to enjoy!"
I can just imagine an entire tree decorated with these pretty ornaments! So lovely!
