I was NOT going to make any more of the Christmas balls
I thought I had made enough!!
BUT Amanda asked!
SO I thought I would "have-a-go" at showing you how to do it!
You get your polystyrene ball..this is the small size (7cm)
mark the lines...(choose the ones with the marks already on its much easier that way)
Then cut along the lines with a knife
lay the fabric along the cut line
take an old card...I found a blockbuster..any will do
push the fabric into the cut with the card! SEE its easy!
continue to lay the fabric along side the cut and push it in (I found if you start in the middle it "eases" in better)
cut off the excess fabric
lay next piece along side and repeat
when its all covered get your ribbon and start to cover the edges
if it wont "STAY" use a pin to hold it down
I made a loop from the ribbon I used round the ball...held in place with a pin
you can use another colour ribbon and push it into the ball
pins help AND I found dipping in craft glue also helps hold things in place.
SO....GO PLAY (oh add beads etc as you wish!)
Phew! I'm worn out now!! Off to play with the 2nd decoration that was demonstrated on Thursday.
