Spool Knitted Cord Ornament

With a long piece of i-cord and glue, you can turn an ordinary styrofoam ball into this decorative looking ornament within 30 minutes (when using an automatic i-cord or spool knitting mill). Add a ribbon to it and then hang it onto the tree. These look especially great in a set



Green Cording Styrofoam Ornament

For this project you will need:

- styrofoam ball
- finished cording that you made with an i-cord knitting mill or a spool knitter
- liquid glue
- straight pins
- silver colored decorative ribbon
- silver wire for hanging


Styrofoam Ball Ornament - Instructions 1
1. Start by covering the top of the ball with glue. Create a circle with the cording and pin it onto the top center of the ball. Add another pin to secure until the glue dries.
2. Continue wrapping the cording tightly around the circle until you reach the other end. Place pins randomly into the cording while you are wrapping to guarantee that the cord stays in place until the glue dries.
3. Once you have finished off the other end, create a simple bow. Use a piece of wire to tie the bow in the center and insert the wire ends into the styrofoam ball. Use a dot on glue on the ends to ensure that they will stay inserted into the ball.
4. Create a spiral hanger to hang ornament onto the tree.

Creating Cording with a Knitting Mill
The cord used for this project was created using a knitting mill and yarn already in the stash. You can use bought cord as well.
