You will need:
3" foam balls
1 roll of 3/8" ribbon-- this will be the main color of the ball
10" of 3/8" ribbon that contrasts with your main color
18" of baby ric rac in a contrasting color
5 " of 5/8" ribbon for the hanger
hot glue gun/hot glue sticks
gappy-- are those words??? you will see what i mean. this is also why you need to use the right width of ribbon-- anything bigger will not wrap tightly to your ball.
4. Once you've wrapped your whole ball you want to end at the top. Cut your ribbon closest to the middle and make sure its glued, make sure the last pass of the bottom is glued too. It will look like this. The left one is the top and the right one the bottom
9. You will then cut your 18 inches of ric rac into two 9" segments and repeat what you did in step 8 excluding finishing the edge. Let me emphasize again-- be careful and make sure that you keep straight lines-- if you look at the following pic you will see why its so important.
p.s. hot glue is really hot, for some reason i always forget this--
