A ribbon was inserted in the ornament using an embroidery needle.

I added a red ribbon to the ornament to hang it up with. The red ribbon was attached by using the embroidery needle to thread it through the plastic canvas mesh. This is just an example of the many types of ornaments you can make during the Christmas season. Happy Holidays!
