DIY Tree Ornament

I saw this cute yarn ornament at Joann's and thought it would go perfectly with our Christmas decor, so me trying to save money and be crafty :) I decided to make four for the same price instead of buying one. It was super easy. Here are the supplies...
I glued the first part of the string to the styrofoam ball and just wrapped it around randomly and glued the end piece on the top.  If you slightly loosen one of the pieces of string on the top that becomes your way to hang it on the tree.
Yay for Christmas!! So you are probably thinking it is not even Thanksgiving yet why have we already put our tree up :). Well I just couldn't wait any longer. Not only did we not decorate last year and so we need to make up for it :) , but I'm just ready for it all.... the christmas music, presents, stockings, lights, wreaths, ribbon, wrapping paper, christmas cards, snow.... doesn't it just make you giddy thinking of it all?
While we were decorating we had lots of fun pulling out all our old ornaments.  My sister, Lauren gave this one to me last year and I had forgotten about it...its my favorite. On the wings it says best sister :) miss that girl.
