Supplies for Amaryllis Inspired Christmas Ornament:
(2) 12 x 12″ shimmer cardstock sheets
(1) 100 ct Long Pearlized Pins (red) 1 1/2″
Start by using the daisy lever punch to make several hundred card stock flowers.
Next stack two flowers together, place on the Styrofoam ball and then insert a pin into the center. Take another pin and lightly fluff/bend the leaves of the flowers to give them a 2-d look. Continue with this step until the ball is completely covered with flowers.
Then use the ribbon to make a separate bow and loop. Fold the ribbon for the loop in half and then pin onto the ball.
Take the ribbon bow and place directly on top of the pinned loop. Attach the bow with a pin in an inconspicuous location. Now the ornament is finished and ready to adorn your tree!

This ornament is so pretty, love the pop of red and the layers of texture!
This is such a pretty ornament, Laura. It’s going to look fabulous on your tree this Christmas.
What a creative and pretty ornament. I love the combination of red white with a touch of black. Definitely simple and elegant!
This is such a lovely and elegant ornament, Laura. It is truly worthy of being a special gift that will be treasured for sure. I recently purchased that same flower punch and I have a couple of good sized balls in my stash. Hmmm… there might be a new ornament in the making at my house. 😉
Thanks so much for joining up with us this year! It’s really a blessing. xo
What a handmade treasure! I’ve never seen those pretty red-headed pins before, but they are really neat–the combination of red and white look beautiful. And I love that you chose a black and white ribbon to set the ornament off. You’ve created a beautiful keepsake!

Laurie, push pins have never looked so lovely. This is really cute and I actually have all the supplies already in-house for this-lol.
