Christmas /Xmas Fabric Bauble - Any Size!

4 Materials
1 Hour

This fabric bauble is easy to make and there is no sewing involved. You can make it any size by simply buying the sized styrofoam (polystyrene) bauble you want. Make several to match or how about a large one to make a statement?

Cut some fabric into approximately 2″ squares. I used pinking shears to give a nice edge and prevent the fabric from fraying. You do not have to.

Use the skewer to make a hole in the ball approximately 0.5″ deep. Put a small blob of glue into the hole. Then use the skewer to push a piece of the fabric into the hole. Remove the skewer and the fabric will stay in the hole.

Continue all over the ball until it is covered. This will use a surprising amount of fabric. My ball has a diameter of approximately 8cm (3″) and I covered it using a fat quarter.

Use a small blob of glue to attach a hanging ribbon unless your ball came with a hanging thread .

If you have any difficulties making your bauble then take a look at my blog at There is a little more detail and guidance.

You have completed your fabric bauble. Well done - enjoy!
