Burlap and Twine Wrapped Foam Balls

Well hello again! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve posted anything due to my time at the Snap Conference. But now I’m back and completely recharged and ready to show you guys some fun new projects, like this one… Burlap and Twine Wrapped Foam Balls!

burlap and twine wrapped foam ballsIn my swag bag from Snap I received a multi-pack of foam balls and knew exactly what I wanted to make as soon as I spotted them. I grabbed the rest of my supplies:

  • Burlap (I used two different colors)
  • Twine
  • Greenery pins
  • Scissors
  • Wire basket (I found mine from Micheal’s)

I varied how much twine I wrapped around each ball, and then did some mini balls wrapped only in twine. And here’s the final result…

St. Patrick’s Day Kissing Balls

Back in early January I shared my pink flowered Kissing Balls that I like to keep on my mantel throughout the year. Well the Irish in me wanted to create something similar for the upcoming holiday, so here’s my St. Patrick’s Day Kissing Balls.

  • Fake bouquets of flowers from the Dollar Tree (10 total)
  • Two styrofoam balls
  • Scissors or wire cutters
