Today is Day 2 of our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway. You can enter each day to win the prize of the day! Contest rules and how to enter are below.
On the second day of our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway, my true love gave to me … a Prairie Point Pinecone Ornament from the American Quilter’s Society!
- 2 1/2 ” diameter Styrofoam® ball
- Fabric scraps (about 1/8 yard total)
- Glue, hot glue, or straight pins
- Decorative cord for hanging
- Cut 1 1/4 ” squares from the fabric scraps. We used 93 for our sample ornament, but you may need more or less. Set one square aside.
- Fold a square in half on the diagonal, wrong sides together, and press. Fold the resulting triangle in half again and press (like making a prairie point). Repeat for all the squares. See figure 1.
- Start by attaching the unfolded square to the ball. This is the center bottom. See figure 2.
- Refer to figure 3 and begin attaching the prairie points, pointing toward the center bottom, overlapping the raw edges of the first square.
- Continue to add rows of prairie points as shown in figure 4. As you approach the horizon, the points will spread out and automatically flare as you reach the top of the ball. See figures 5 and 6.
- When you reach the top of the ball, cut a scrap of fabric that will cover the raw edges of the uppermost prairie points. Glue it in place.
- Tie the ends of the decorative cord in a bow to make a hanging loop. Attach the bow to the ornament with a pin or glue.
