I needed a touch of spring for our dining room table. I bought these foam balls which are about 4" in diameter.
I have bins and bins of fabric. I always over-buy! Any way, I went through some of my favorites:
And narrowed it down to the finalists:
I tore my fabric into strips about 1.5" wide. This is really easy to do. Just make a little snip with your scissors and then tear it the rest of the way across your fabric.
I overlapped the strips by a little bit. They crossed at each polar end forming an X.
I continued wrapping the fabric around the ball until it was completely covered. I hot glued the strip on the bottom each time I wrapped it around. I also glued any gaping areas when I was all done.
I love how they turned out!
