INSTRUCTIONS



TRELLIS WRAPPED ORNAMENT

Push one pin into styrofoam ball ("north pole"), then push another into the ball directly opposite from the first ("south pole").

These points are for reference.

Place end of Trellis at one pin and wrap yarn to other pin, then back to beginning point.

Repeat all the way around ball so that entire ball is covered once with Trellis, overlapping yarn always at top and bottom points (at pins).

Styrofoam will still be visible since the yarn has a "window" effect.

Repeat so that Styrofoam is no longer visible - this may take 2-3 layers.

Since overlapping occurs at top and bottom, the ball will be slightly oblong after wrapping.

Cut and glue end down.

Cut a strand of yarn 6 1/4 inches [16.5 cm] long or desired length.

Glue both ends to top of ornament for hanging loop.

INCREDIBLE WRAPPED ORNAMENT WITH TRELLIS TRIM

These points are for reference.

Place end of Incredible at one pin and wrap ball to other pin, then back to beginning point.

Cut a strand of yarn 6 1/4 inches [16.5 cm] long or desired length.
