Safari Print Deco Spheres

Materials

  • Dow STYROFOAM Brand Foam balls, 4”
  • Animal print tissue paper

Tools

  • Plaid Matte Mod Podge

Basic Supplies

scissors, pencil, jar or container, paintbrush or foam brush, wooden skewer or chopstick

Directions

STEP 1

  • Insert chopstick or wooden skewer into bottom of 4” ball. (Note: This will serve as handle.) Mark center top of ball with pencil.

STEP 2

  • Print out pattern. Cut six sections from tissue paper for each ball. Make small snips in edges of each piece to help paper fit flat against curved surface of ball.

STEP 3

  • Spread generous layer of Mod Podge onto section of ball from top to bottom.

STEP 4

  • Position tip of first tissue section at chopstick. Gently place tissue on ball so tip of other end touches pencil dot at top. Carefully smooth down tissue paper with fingertips.

STEP 5

  • Gently spread generous coat of Mod Podge on top of tissue section. Repeat, slightly overlapping tissue pieces. Position handle in jar or container while ball dries.

STEP 6

  • Brush on two to three more coats of Mod Podge, letting ball dry between each coat.

STEP 7

  • When completely dry, twist chopstick out of ball. Cover bottom hole with 1/4” square of tissue paper; apply Mod Podge to seal.

Tip

  • 1. Arrange deco spheres in a vase, flat dish, or on a metallic tray for an eye-catching centerpiece or table design.
