The art of making Temari balls is a Japanese tradition.

While many contemporary Temari makers use a core of a styrofoam ball, I make my Temari Ball Ornaments the traditional way,
using a core of fabric and batting, wrapped with yarn, over-wrapped with thread, then hand embroidered.

3.5" diameter (9 cm) (sizes may vary slightly)
Each weighs about 5 ounces

All ornaments arrive gift-wrapped with tissue in a pretty colored take-out box
