Sisal Christmas ornaments

I've been on a "making" Christmas ornaments kick the last couple of days.  If you missed it, you can read about the mercury glass ornaments I recently did here.

I wanted to do some with sisal...  I also did a couple of Christmas trees :)

And, so I sat down & went to work.

If you have a glue gun, sisal and foam forms...you can do this!

I picked up the sisal (dark & light color) at Tractor Supply, but I know I've seen it at Home Depot, Lowes, craft stores, etc.  TSC has these large rolls for I believe $9.99, there is lots of sisal there!

The foam forms you can get in multiple places.  I happen to pick mine up at WalMart.  I've seen them at the dollar stores and of course craft stores have them.

I added some little embellishments to them.. Nothing to fancy, but just a little something.

And, for the loops to hold a hook, I just punched a tiny hole in the top.  Tied the ends of the rope, and pushed the knot into the hole with my scissors, and added just a little hot glue.

 Really a super simple little project.  I sat down and did these while watching TV with maybe a glass of wine.  I love how they came out.

I had the star from another craft I did..

I have more ball foams, and I plan to make more with a few different embellishments that I have on hand.

I hope you enjoyed!!

With much love, peace & happiness~
