What you'll need:
2-3 sizes of styrofoam balls. Mine were about 2.5" and 3.5" in diameter
hot glue gun
wired organdy ribbon
small silk flowers
yarn (the thick stuff)
Jute (looks like twine)
First I used felt circles. I cut about 30 1.5" felt circles. Then fold them in half, and half again. Then, to make gluing and application easier I stuck my thumb and forefinger inside the quarter folded circle to hold it. Then I used hot glue and stuck it onto my ball.
I also used silk flowers by pulling them off the stems and separating the two layers of flowers and gluing them on individually.
This one was the easiest and one of my favorites. Using a thick yarn start at one end of your ball and glue it around your whole ball. This is what I did with the jute as well.
And I didn't get picture of the ribbon, as it was an after thought idea, but I basically only glued on two ends of the ball, on the "poles", if you will. And I wrapped the ribbon vertically from "pole" to "pole". See top picture for detail.
Have fun making your own balls!! ;)
