Fabric Ball Christmas Decoration,
Foam Ball (I used a 6″ one),
Hot Glue Gun
Fabric (cut into squares)
Use your wire, to twist into a loop. Insert that loop into the top of your foam ball, with the wire ends pointing in opposite directions. This will securely attach the wire loop to the foam ball, and now you’re ready for the fun part.
Prepare your fabric by cutting into squares. I used approximately 4″ x 4″ square pieces, but any size will do — It just depends how fluffy you would like your ball to be. No need to be precise, any four-sided shape will do. Be quick and be easy on yourself. Next, gather a fabric piece around the tip of your pencil. Add a dab of hot glue, to the fabric (over the pencil) and pierce it into the foam ball.
Then, you guessed it… keep going! I chose to keep my squares tightly packed together, but you could do it a little looser, for a bit less work (just make sure you’re completely hiding the foam ball). It’s the perfect Netflix-binge activity, or, the perfect, Christmas-album-on-repeat activity.
This project can easily be changed up with different fabric choices, (what about a fun polka-dot?) for different occasions and events. Ouu! Maybe even white fabric balls, with contrasting ribbon at a wedding? Gorgeous.
Lastly, get that ribbon on there! Simply tie the two ends in a knot. Keeping the knot under the wire loop, and cut a pretty decorative detail onto the ends. I love the classic triangle cut. Simple and elegant.
This Fabric Ball Decoration, is so easy you guys! And, it makes the perfect gift for a loved one. It’s so easy to customize it to their decor and colour choices.
