To cover the 5" and 4" balls, pin on the four black felt pieces first. Divide the balls into quarters, pinning at the top and bottom of the ball. Glue down any loose edges. Pin the four printed pieces centered onto the bare sections of each ball. Glue down any loose edges. To cover the 3" ball, pin the two brown pieces on first to divide the ball in half. Pin the two printed pieces centered onto the bare sections. Glue down any loose edges.

Glue pieces of suede lace around the balls to embellish and finish the felt edges.
