- Small stuffed ornaments
- Large embroidery hoop
- Hot glue
Step 1: Separate the embroidery hoops and, using hot glue, attach one end of the yarn to the inside of the inner piece of the embroidery hoop. Begin wrapping the yarn, very tightly, around the hoop until fully covered. Glue in place to secure.
Step 2: Attach ribbon at various lengths to the tops of the ornaments with hot glue. You also can hand sew the ribbon, if desired. Loop and glue the ribbons over the embroidery hoop, spacing them evenly.
Step 3: Loop three more ribbons around the embroidery hoop, adjusting the lengths until the hoop hangs evenly. Tie together. Attach one more long ribbon to the three that are tied together to hang from the ceiling.
Step 4: Once your ribbon is at the desired length, use thumbtacks to attach it to the ceiling or loop it around a ceiling hook.
