    • Ball, 3"
    • Block, 2" thick
  • Acrylic craft paint, purple
  • Ribbon: 1/8" x 2/3 yd. yellow satin; 1/4" x 12" red satin; 5/8" x 1-1/2 yd. measuring tape print

  2. Hang selected miniatures, such as spools, scissors and needle, from 1/8" ribbon. Glue 2" - 3" lengths of ribbon to mini spools; pin ribbon ends to top of ball so spools hang down side of ball. Tie a short length of ribbon to scissors and pin to top of ball. Thread ribbon through needle and pin to top of ball. Glue remaining miniatures to ball, using photo as a guide; when gluing, gently press objects into surface of ball.
