Today we are going to learn how to make these loverly balls. My husband loves it when I decorate these. He has so many sayings to go along with them. I know I know...don't judge :) These are so easy to make but take a while. The good thing is you can watch a good movie (or 2) while assembling these balls. Here we go....
Take a Styrofoam ball...any size will do. I got mine at Joanns with a coupon!! Yeehaw!
This project takes 2 1/2 yards of fabric.
Take the fabric and cut into 2x2 squares. This would be so much faster if my rotary cutter blade was sharp.
This step will take you down memory lane. Remember when you had to make pinatas for 5th grade with messy newspaper dipped in glue and crepe paper everywhere and.... oh the memories. Wrap a 2x2 square of fabric around the tip of a pencil. Then take that end and dip it in a little mod podge.
Now you are going to take that piece of fabric and stick it into the ball. Just a little stick will do.
Here is what it looks like all done. Pretty ball!
This is what happens when you are lazy and figure no one will see the back anyway :)
I stuck it on this glass thingy that I had in my jar cupboard. It goes on top of my mantle but I am too short to get up there to get a cute picture. So for now it is in front of the fire place. (see my cute kids on the side....aawww)
I just bought 2 shades of green to make a St Patty's one.
I have made it, sold it, and bought the t-shirt...Coley did I say that right? lol I love to add my personality to every video. I ignored the professional warning when they say don't try this at home! I hope you learn a little something as you laugh your way through my tutorials. Happy crafting and have a FABULOUS time making your way through the blog!
