Jingle Balls

With Crafternoon a week away, (yes a week away now...actually, I lie, 6 days away) us Crafty Creatures decided to make some Christmassy baubles like the ones you can make at crafternoon. They are pretty simple and quick to make and look fantastic.

The first thing to do is to get a polystyrene ball (available from ebay) and wrap it up in wool, material or paint it so that the base is a nice texture and colour. See us the lovely ladies below doing this.
Once they are completely covered we then stuck colourful pins into them, beads and attached ribbon to form a bow which can use to hang them to a tree...a voila:

You could always turn then into an accessory if you fancy. Crafty Julia took this to a completely new level to show how versatile they can be
