The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Open Sphere 3-D Ornament:

Print two copies of the Pyramid Ball Ornament pattern.

Cut out eight shapes.

You can make the balls with more of the shapes if you want bigger ornaments.

Pyramid Ball Ornament step 1 cut out shapes

Cut along the solid gray line on the diagonal for each of the shapes.

Stop the cut at the halfway point where the line becomes dotted.

Pyramid Ball Ornament step 2 cut diagonal halfway

Fold along each of the eight shapes along the dotted lines.

Pyramid Ball Ornament step 3 fold on dotted lines

Reverse the folds of the pyramid to hide the gray lines inside.

Pyramid Ball Ornament step 4 reverse fold to form peak

Overlap and glue the triangles to secure the pyramid shape.

Pyramid Ball Ornament step 6 glue triangles

Continue folding and gluing the remaining shapes to make eight pyramids.

Pyramid Ball Ornament step 6 make 8 shapes

Place glue on one of the three arcs around one of the pyramid shapes.

Position an arc of a second pyramid over the glue matching the edges.

Pyramid Ball Ornament step 7 glue two arcs

Working in pairs, continue gluing one arc of one pyramid to one arc of another pyramid until the eight shapes become four shapes.

Pyramid Ball Ornament step 8 make 4 shapes

Place glue on two arcs of one of the two-pyramids shapes.

Match two arcs from a second two-pyramid shape over the glue.

Do this for the second pair of two-pyramid shapes.

The result is two shapes each with four pyramids.

Pyramid Ball Ornament step 9 make two shapes

Cut a piece of yarn 8 to 10 inches long.

Pyramid Ball Ornament step 10 cut yarn

Fold the yarn in half.

Place glue on the two cut ends of yarn and position the ends inside one of the pyramids.

Pyramid Ball Ornament step 11 glue yarn

Place glue on the four arcs of one of the four-pyramid shapes.

Position the second four-pyramid shape's arcs over the glue on the first shape's arcs.

Match the edges before the glue begins to set.

Make sure the yarn loop is outside of the pyramid ball ornament.

Pyramid Ball Ornament step 12 glue shape

The Pyramid Ball Ornament is finished and ready to display.
