  • 6? Styrofoam Ball
  • Bread Knife
  • Heavy piece of cardstock

1. Begin with a large 6? diameter Styrofoam ball. I found one at my local craft store for $4.99.

2. Using a bread knife or a Styrofoam cutting knife cut the ball in half.


3. Attach heavy cardstock to the bottom of the Styrofoam for a nice underneath finish. I used Glue Dots to hold the cardstock in place but double-sided tape would work, as well. Also at this time gather your straight pins and large width ribbon.

4. Cut a piece of ribbon large enough to fit around the entire diameter of the Styrofoam (add a couple inches to fold the ends over). Place the ribbon around the Styrofoam and hold it in place with large straight pins.
