By: Homemaking Honeys

  • Small Styrofoam Ball
  • Medium or Large Styrofoam Ball
  • Wood Dowel
  • Ribbon about 2 - 3 yards about 1 inch wide
  • Sequin Pins
  • Moss
  • Small metal pail


  1. Cut the ribbon into 2 inch strips. Pin one strip on the very top of the Large Styrofoam Ball.
  2. Fold the sides of a piece of ribbob down so that it makes a triangle and pin this to the styrofoam ball. Starting at the top. Continue this step all the way around the styrofoam ball one row at a time. When you pin each row you will be covering the pins which are showing from the previous row.

  3. At the bottom of the styrofoam ball you will pin a ribbon like you did at the top cut a slit in the ribbon before you pin it down. This is where the wooden dowel will go.

  4. Next, I cut the wooden dowel the length I wanted it and painted it. I choose to paint it black. I then set it aside to dry.

  8. I then stuck the other end of the dowel into the styrofoam ball which was glued into the small pail. I then put the moss on top of the small styrofoam ball.

  9. Lastly I tied a bow around the dowel. And there you have it. Just like magic I was able to transform a styrofoam ball into something beautiful for my mantle over Valentines.
