6 years ago, Jeff and I were married 2 days before Christmas. Our colors were black, brown, green and cream. For the decorations on the tables, we used black and brown Christmas balls of various sizes. As a result, I have a ton of ornaments. Last year, we bought a real Christmas tree for the first time and I couldn't stomach putting these basic ornaments on, so I rummaged through my stash of fabric samples and busted out the glue gun and came up with the ornaments below.
I did a few different things with these. Once I got started my imagination ran wild. For one, I just wrapped strips of fabric virtically around the ball. For another one, I took small squares of fabric and just started gluing. With a fabric that I particularly liked, I just cut a large square and folded it up putting dots of glue to hold it in place. For the bottom left, I cut almond shaped pieces and glued them on. Below are picture instructions for the ruffley ones.
