How To Wednesday; Ribbon Ball

We are loving How to Wednesday.  It is so fun to share DIY projects that have been used for past events, and we hope that you have been inspired. This week we are going to show you how to transform a boring Styrofoam ball into a wonderful event decor element.

What you will need:

  • A round styrofoam ball
  • 3 rolls of ribbon (color of your choice) Also, wider ribbon works best.
  • Stick pins (You can buy a pack at Hobby Lobby for around 3.00
Step 1:  Cut your ribbon into equal 1/2 inch lengths. 
Step 2: Take your plain styrofoam ball, a stick pin, and one piece of ribbon.  Starting at the bottom fold your ribbon in half, and place it on the styrofoam ball with a stick pin.  

Step 3:  Repeat step 2 until entire ball is covered with ribbon.  Make sure to work from the bottom up.  
Step 4:  Place the finished ball on a wooden stick, include it in a wreath etc.  The uses are endless. 

Finished Product:

I hope you enjoyed this week's how to.  Please feel free to contact us for more great ideas!
