A Southern girl is a girl who knows full and well that she can open a door for herself but prefers for the gentleman to do it because it demonstrates a sense of respect. After all, every girl wants to be treated like a princess. She knows how to make sweet tea and grits while telling you everything about any football team in the SEC. She picks her battles and fights with the heart of a pit-bull while still maintaining grace and elegance. Her mystique is that of a soft-spoken, mild-mannered southern belle who could direct an army, loves her momma, and will always be daddy's little girl.

Being home puts me a crafty mood! Recently online, I saw some ornaments made this way but they used a napkin, where as I used wrapping paper. Things you will need:
  • paint brush
  • paper Mod Podge
  • wrapping paper or napkins
  • glass or plastic ornament
  • rubber band
I put a band of Mod Podge around the middle of the ornament and then placed the strip of wrapping paper, centered and secured it with a rubber band. Then I cut slits in the paper to make it easier to wrap around the circular ball. Coat the inside of the ornament with Mod Podge and smooth down the pieces of paper with your fingers. After that sticks down, remove the rubber band and coat the top with the Mod Podge, don't worry- it will dry clear!

The finalized ornament should look like this! I finished it off with a pretty pink bow!
