We've made a Christmas angel and a Christmas ornament with foam balls so we thought it would be fun to make one with cotton balls. Toddlers and preschoolers will love how they feel, and how pretty they look decorating the Christmas tree.
Supplies for snowball ornament
- cotton balls
- narrow ribbon
1. Thread cotton balls onto a length of yarn. Don't worry if the needle doesn't push through neatly - the fluffier the better when making a snowball ornament.
2. Tie the two yarn ends together, drawing the cotton balls into a circle.
3. Once the cotton balls are drawn snugly together, tie the ends of yarn to make a hanger.
4. Now comes the fun part! Squish the cotton balls in your palm - or use two hands! - to shape the snowball just the way you want it.
5. Add a decorative bow with narrow ribbon.
Have you squished the snowball to look just the way you want it!
Now you can decorate the Christmas tree with this soft and fluffy snowball ornament.
