Christmas Buffalo Check Ornament

14 Materials
1 Hour

These are great holiday ornaments that can be made for about $1 each! They are super easy to make and the perfect addition to your Christmas tree or holiday decor. I'd love to see how yours turn out!

What you’ll need is:

Plastic baseball (Dollar tree 3 for $1)

Shish kebab stick or wooden dowel



Glue gun



Drill/drill bit

Christmas greens


Wire cutters



First, take your plastic baseball and your drill and drill a hole in the center of the ball.

Then, take your fabric of choice, a plate and your sharpie. Trace your plate onto the fabric using your sharpie.

Once you have your circle, take your scissors and cut it out.

Lay your fabric down and place your baseball in the center.

Then, use your wooden dowel to push the edge of your fabric into the hole of the baseball.

Work around the piece of fabric, pushing it into the hole until all of the fabric is covering the ball and secure.

Once all of your fabric is pushed in, it should look something like this.

Next, you will make the hanging string. Take your twine and knot one end together creating a loop.

Then, take your hot glue and push the knotted end of your twine into the hole and secure with the glue.

This is what you should end up with.

I then took my Christmas greens and cut them in different sizes to add to my ornaments. I also added a ribbon bow, some rusty snowflakes and pinecones that I had. You can use whatever you like to embellish your ornaments.

They are the perfect addition to my Christmas decor!
