I found a couple of my Ribbon Star Ornaments in a stash...
I use to make these for Gift toppers at Christmas,,(many years ago)..
These are sew simple,,,

and perfect for any Holiday, or special occasion.
Buy a roll of 1 1/2" ribbon or cut fabric strips.. cut a 4" piece, fold in half and angle cut off the edge.. then curl around and glue the ends... I use a paper clip to keep the ends together until the glue dries... or you can use a glue gun...
As you can see, you will need 8 'cones' then glue them together into a circle.. I used Tulle netting around the back. glue on a piece of ribbon or satin cording to hang the ornament.
And then decorate the center with flowers or buttons or what ever catches your fancy.

You can even cut the edge with pinking shears...
I prefer ribbon that is a bit stiff so the cones stay in shape.
You can find cute Boo Fest, Turkey Fest, Christmas, Easter.. etc types of ribbon,, I was hoping to find 1 1/2" ribbon with Unicorns on it,,, so I could make a ornament for my Grand girlie who currently is smitten with Unicorns.. I will keep looking..

Oh, just a little FYI,,if you want, you can cut out a circle from card stock to glue the cones onto if you want the ornament more firm.

Hummm good thinking Grace! My oldest would enjoy making some ornaments. I'll have him help me pick some stuff out. I seen a really cool ornament yesterday made out of foam that I also want to try. We are going to stay busy.

I too love these---but they don't look that easy to me. You are so talented and you keep so busy on projects---that it is amazing. If I didn't fool with animals all day and watch a little too much TV---I would have time to sew. Am beginning to think I waste a lot of time.
