You will need:
-ribbon cut in 4 in strips LOTS!! ( any size I recommend doing 2 different sizes)
-straight pins ( any kind, I liked the pearl ones)
-styrofoam ball ( any size, I did a 6in ball)
- wooden dowel
- pot ( any kind, I did a Terra cotta pot and painted it white)
- hot glue
I did 2 sizes of ribbon ( 7/8in and 1.5in)
I bought a 6in styrofoam ball ( finished product with a 6 in ball is about 8-9in round)
Take 1 of your cuts of ribbon and make a loop
Then stick your pin through the loop
different angle to show the pin and loop.
Then you stick your pin with the ribbon on it into the styrofoam ball. Make sure to push the pin in all the way in till it stops.
I put my ribbon going all different directions, you don't have to make it in perfect lines. I think it looks best to have them placed everywhere.
just another angle
you finished product will look like this
once i was all done with the ball I made a hole in the styrofoam ball with my wooden dowel then i used my glue gun an put some glue in the hole ( not to much ) I then place the wooden dowel back into the hole and let set up. I used my floral foam and put it in the bottom of my pot. then i did the same thing and placed my dowel in the foam. once i was done I found so tissue and tulle and covered up my foam.
I also added ribbon around the top of my pot to match. Hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Stay tuned for more.
