On Pins & Needles - Making Decorative Fabric Balls

While browsing on Pinterest, I came across this fun little craft project by Landee See Landee Do.  Her tutorial seemed simple and easy to follow so I gave it a try.

Anyone can create this project--just choose your favorite fabrics and get started! 

TIP: Use solid styrofoam balls instead of the kind with small holes in it. The solid kind will hold the pins better and keep the fabric in place.

TIP: The fabric strips can be cut in various sizes but it works best if they are no longer than the circumference of the ball and are less than an inch wide.

These fabric balls are actually fun and very relaxing to make, you can easily whip up a set while watching your favorite movie!

The best part about this project is that you can make it your own by using different fabrics and different size styrofoam balls to create a set that is uniquely yours!  Grab a decorative bowl or vase and display your set of fabric balls!

I display these fabric balls in a milk glass bowl in my bedroom, I love the way it looks! Be sure to check out other recent projects completed for my bedroom:
