Every Thursday in July we are showing you how to make an ornament from a Crime Scene Christmas tree. Last week we made "The Suspect" ornament and this week Kerry Hammond and I got together to show you how to make a crime scene ribbon ornament.
These Crime Scene Christmas Ornaments are extremely easy to make, and they look great on a crime scene Christmas tree. You can decorate them any way you like, and the ones shown here are just examples.
- Black Christmas Ball Ornaments (we got these at Michaels)
- Crime Scene Ribbon
- Elmer’s Glue
- Dixie Cups
Wrap your ribbon around your ball to get an idea of how long you need and cut. I gave myself a small overlap.
Cover the back of the ribbon with Elmer’s Glue and using your finger, smooth it out so the entire surface is covered.
Carefully place the glued ribbon on the ball. Start with the center and wrap each side around and hold down for a few seconds to let the glue get tacky. Set in a Dixie cup to dry.
Using a wet Q-tip, rub away the excess glue residue where it may have bled from underneath your ribbon.
This part is optional, and I only did it for a few ornaments. If you don’t want to use a metal ornament hanger, cut another piece of ribbon and thread it through the ornament. Tie in a knot to hang on the tree.
