Hello! Today I’m going to show you how to make this Fabric Scrap Ornament. This is a great way to use up all those scraps, and looks super cute!

Fabric Scrap Ornament Tutorial



  • Foam Craft Ball.
  • Scrap Fabric. You’ll need about 1/4 yard. Cut into 1 1/2 inch squares
  • Ribbon. Just a short piece for the ornament loop.
  • Hot glue gun. Craft glue will work too, but takes longer to dry.
  • Poking tool. Here I’m using a dotting tool, but anything with a pointed tip will work. You could use a paintbrush handle, a sharpened pencil, or the tip of a pair of scissors.


Start by taking your ribbon, and folding it in half to form a loop. Then take the open end of the loop, and fold it over the end of your poking tool. Put a small drop of hot glue on the ribbon, and then poke it into the top of your foam ball. It should be deep enough that the tails disappear.

Now that the ornament has a loop, we can make it look cute! To make each little puff, take a square of fabric and wrap it around your poking tool, with the pretty side of the fabric folded to the inside. Try and keep your poking tool centered in the square of fabric for a neat finish. Put a drop of glue on the point, and poke it into your ball. It’ll stop naturally at a good depth if you use a medium amount of pressure as you push it in. I like to start near the loop and work outwards from there.


Keep creating more puffs, keeping them close to each other and moving around the ball.


Once you have about half the ball covered, this is what it will look like. Keep going!


You’re all done! This Fabric Scrap Ornament is a great use for scrap fabric and a fun craft to make!
