Candy Striped Christmas Ornaments

Peppermint stripes adorn these ornaments and they are so easy to make with striped paper cord and styrofoam balls.

For one ornament you will need:

- 35 mm styrofoam ball
- paper cording with red and white stripes
- strong craft glue
- straight pins
- plastic hook for hanging styrofoam balls
- wooden shish kabob skewer


1. Place the styrofoam ball onto a shish kabob skewer. Add glue to the ball at one spot. Pin the end of the paper cord to this spot. Start winding the paper then around this beginning in a spiral kind of way. Keep adding glue and pinning the paper along the way to hold it in place.

2. Continue unto you have reached the other end of the ball. Remove the skewer and insert the hook in the same hole. If you need to, add a drop of glue to the hole to hold the hook better. Then wrap the paper cord around until the ball is completely covered. Cut and glue the other end nicely to the ball and let it dry overnight. Then remove the pins and add a ribbon to the hook for hanging.
