Project Instructions

Wrap the balls with yarn until completely covered. Glue the ends where you start and stop to secure. You can get unique looks by wrapping the balls in different ways. Hold all three colors together while wrapping to create colorful stripes. Wrap one half of the ball with one color and half with another color. Divide the ball in quarters with the colors to create wide stripes of color.

Embellish the balls with decorative buttons.


Use low-temp glue to prevent melting of the Styrofoam®.
