My Lamb Ear Ornament
Tacky or All-Purpose Glue (I would have used Tacky glue, but mine had dried out completely!)
3" Styrofoam ball or the size you want
8 to 10 5 or 6" Lambs Ear leaves
So you just want to make sure that your leaves overlap and that you use enough glue to glue them down. I used straight pins with ball ends to hold the ends of the leaves down. Then after I made my bow, I used a couple more straight pins with red heads to stabilize the bow.
I also found in my search a lamb ornament made out of the parts of the lamb ear's plant by Fairegarden in Tennessee. Hope I don't get in trouble with the copyright thing on her photos! Very cute and if I can remember at blooming time this year, I'm try to make one for you. Couldn't get a caption on one of the photos, but you get the idea hopefully. You'll have lots of time between now and this Christmas to get ornaments done!
Going to warm up now. We are supposed to be 60 by the end of the week. I have been exercising inside. Much safer. Hope you are having a wonderful day. Talk to you later.
