Easy Christmas Crafts: Crocheted Doily Wrapped Ornament


Make this fun and easy Crocheted Doily Wrapped Ornament with a round doily, a glass ornament and length of ribbon.

You can use a pretty heirloom doily similar to this first example since the doily will not be damaged by cutting or sewing.

Or, you can use an inexpensive doily (this one's from Michaels for $1) similar to this example:

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Crocheted Doily Wrapped Ornament:

Wrap the doily around the glass ornament to determine where to insert the ribbon for the gathers.

In the white example, the doily was hand crocheted and 8 1/2 inches in diameter, however the threads were stiff and not very giving. The ribbon had to be inserted very near the edge of the white doily.

The softer store-bought doilies were 8 inches in diameter and very stretchy.

The ribbon was inserted further from the edge to pull the doily tight around the ball.

Crocheted Doily Wrapped Ornament step 1 determine where to gather

Begin weaving the ribbon in a consistent circle around the doily using the holes in the doily.

If your ribbon has different sides, for example one shiny and one dull, put the preferred side of the ribbon facing outward.

Finish weaving around the doily, but do not cut the ribbon.

Insert the glass ball ornament into the center of the doily.

Gently pull the ribbon ends to gather the doily around the glass ball.

Pull the ribbon ends firmly and tie a bow.

Trim the ribbon ends to the desired length and cut the ends at an angle.

To make a ribbon hanging loop, insert the ribbon into the wire hanger on the end of the glass ball.

Pull the ends to the desired length, tie a knot and trim the ends at an angle.

Very quickly, the Crocheted Doily Wrapped Ornament is finished and ready to hang as a decoration.

The wrapped glass balls add a soft touch to the decorations and can be bright and colorful or in the white, more of a Victorian theme.

Have fun!

The Crocheted Doily Wrapped Ornament can add a fun touch to the holiday decorations and with heirlooms can also add family heritage to the tree.
