June 6th is D-Day and a good day to start making this Patriotic Ornament to decorate trees in remembrance of the many who lost their lives or were injured during World War II. This ornament is a perfect gift to make for any veteran or service person for any occasion or to add to your own collection. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
2-1/2" Styrofoam Ball
Approximately 200 Blue Sequins
Approximately 100 Red Sequins
Approximately 100 White Sequins
Small Ribbon Bow
Thin Rubber Band
Push a hair pin half way in on the top of the ball. This will be the hanger.
Place a thin rubber band around the middle of the Styrofoam ball.
Squeeze some tacky glue out on a piece of wax paper. Pick up a white sequin with a pin and scoop up some glue with the tip of the pin. Press into the Styrofoam ball right beneath the rubber ban. Continue adding pins with white sequins all around the ball completely covering the rubber band.
Beneath add a row of red, then white, alternating until the bottom is covered.
Do the top in blue in the same manner. Working around the hair pin hanger.
