No Sew Fabric Christmas Ornament to Easily Personalize Your Tree

Would you like to have a very crafty Christmas? 

This no-sew fabric Christmas ornament will add an unusual touch to your Christmas tree. 

You can make it together with kids and you’ll probably hang this ornament on your tree year after year. 

This no-sew ornament is crafted from soft spandex fabric with metallic accents.

Deep red and shimmering in the light, this ornament is a real show-stopper. 

If you have small kids or pets you better use soft ornaments because they don’t shatter when dropped.

In bright red with some sparkles, it’s the perfect way to make your Christmas tree shine.

What you’ll need


  • Styrofoam Ball (I used 2.7-inch ball)
  • Fabric  (maybe around half a yard, but the amount of fabric will depend on the size of styrofoam ball and how close you will insert the squares). I used spandex fabric because it doesn’t fray. 
  • Ribbon for hanging the ornament
  • Wooden skewer to push fabric into the ball (or you can use a bamboo knitting needle)
  • Glue (or glue gun) to attach the ribbon

So, let’s dress up a plain styrofoam ball. 


Cut 50-60 squares from your fabric. The size of the square is 2 in x 2 in. 

If you have a rotary cutter and cutting mat you can use these tools for cutting squares. Or you can just use fabric shears. The squares don’t need to be precise.


Now take a wooden skewer or something like that, for example, a bamboo knitting needle, and push the fabric square into the ball using the wooden skewer. The fabric will stay inside the ball. Some pieces may occasionally fall but you can easily reinsert them. 


Glue a piece of ribbon for hanging the ornament. 

Cover the whole ball with fabric. 

Isn’t it fun to make something like this?
