A different look

How about all neutral tones for the rag ball ornaments?

For this one, I ripped natural colored muslin fabric and covered the styrofoam ball. I misted the ornament with instant coffee and blow dried it to give it an "aged" look. Then I used hemp, vintage beige seam binding, a bell that I aged a bit in a solution, a snippet of old lace and lastly an instant coffee dyed tag with a torn piece of sheet music on it to adorn the top.

To top it all off, I lightly sprayed with glue and added diamond dust to give it a sparkly snowy effect!

I like his one even better, especially for a tree (as opposed to sitting in a bowl).

Neutrals always work and are sometimes even better than bright colours. I've always been partial to neutrals.
