Remember this ?
Well as I was making some more I thought Id try my hand at my first tutorial.
So on to - Simple Easy Snow balls in the heat!
These are what you will need, I just used what I had on hand.
A million flat head pins
Ribbon, enough to from a small loop
Glue ( not totally necessary, I like the added protection),
Felt, I just used some acrylic that we had lying around in the kids craft box
A pointy thing ( end of a pencil would work fine, I used my rub on tool)
Ok got all that together? Now to work
Make a hole in the ball with the pointy object of your choice, and then push the ends ribbon inside, forming a loop, making sure ends are tucked in. Inset a pin on either side at an angle into the hole. This is where I also squirted a touch of glue,just to be on the safe side.
Now the fun part, cut a million felt "circlish" shapes, mine are in no way uniform, but I swear it works!
Choose a place on the styrofoam ball, grab a pin, spear it through the felt and stab it in to the ball.
And then a million times more, over lapping the circles as you go.
Until you get this!
Hang on the tree and enjoy.
