Materials needed to make your Christmas balls
6 cm Styrofoam balls
Red sequin pack (or the color you prefer)
Red satin ribbon (or any color you like)
2. These are the materials needed for our step-by-step how to make Christmas balls
Step 1: attach the sequins to the Christmas balls
Take the Styrofoam ball, position a sequin and secure with the head pin through the hole, going all the way to the end. Repeat the process, positioning the sequins side by side. You can use the line that marks the half of the Styrofoam ball and that already comes from the factory as a guide to make your custom Christmas balls.
Step 2: make new sequin rows
Start a new row of sequins from the space between one sequin and another from the first row and repeat the process until the end of the row. Then repeat the process with a new row and so on until you fill the Christmas balls completely, leaving only a space on top of them. Beware of the blank spaces!
7. Use the spaces between the sequins in the first row to start a second row on the Christmas balls
8. Do this very carefully until you almost completely cover your custom Christmas balls
Step 3: attach a satin ribbon to the top of the Christmas balls
When your custom Christmas balls are covered with sequins, cut a piece of satin ribbon approximately 10 cm and fold it in half. You will position the tips in the blank space you left free on top of the Christmas balls. Attach the ends of the satin ribbon with some sequins, thus filling the remaining space and giving a finish.
Your Christmas ball is ready!
