Awesome Comic Wrapped Decorative Balls


This is a fun and easy crafting with kids project. Recycle your favorite comic strip from the newspaper or a comic book and decoupage them on to STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam balls. Kids will love picking out their own design and displaying these in their rooms.

Comic Wrapped Balls


  • STYROFOAM Brand Foam:
    • 5" or 6" Ball
  • Comic section of newspaper or comic books
  • Small disposable container
  • 1" foam brush
  • Heavyweight glass quart jar
  • Gloss decoupage medium (optional)
  • White craft glue, thick
  • Wooden skewer
  • Scissors



  1. Using photo as a guide, cut comics into assorted small shapes such as rectangles and squares. Also cut out some individual characters and interesting word balloons, following their outlines.
  2. Insert a wooden skewer into foam ball to use as a handle while adhering images. Thin glue with water and then brush onto a small section of the ball. Place a comic cutout in the glue and press onto the ball, smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles. Brush a small amount of glue over top of image, making sure all edges are secure.
    Continue to adhere cutouts to ball until completely covered, overlapping images in a pleasing manner. Add word balloons last so messages are easily readable.
  3. Stand skewer in a glass jar, allowing ball to dry thoroughly.
  4. If desired, apply a coat of decoupage medium over entire ball to produce a glossy finish. Let dry and then remove wooden skewer.
