Anyway the instructions!
Ribbon: Different widths in your color scheme, I used with my various colors roughly 30 metres per ball to make one pomander ball( I wasn't exactly scrimping on ribbon so it may take you less!)
Pins: Estimated packet of 100 per ball ( you can use one pin per ribbon strip, but I like to be doubly sure so I used two per ribbon strip)
Scissors: for obviously cutting ribbon
Styrofoam Ball: I used the 5 inch ball, but it depends on whats available in your craft store or your individual need.
String/Rope: to hang your pomander ball - can be cut into various lengths, depending on your need!.
Step 1: Cut ribbon into 4 inch strips ( you will have MANY strips, I'm not sure on the count tho)
Step 2: Form each strip of ribbon into the shape of a circle overlapping the ends.
Step 3: Put the pin in the two overlapping ends.
Step 4: Stick the pins in the Styrofoam ball. For a tighter look stick the ribbon closer together!
Step 5: Once the ball is full as you like!
Step 6: Attach Rope! - I used a simple knot and pinned it into the ball (about 4 pins, you could probably get away with 2 but I like to be doubly sure!)
How long did it take for each one? Two gilmore girl episodes :) haha. I have ten to do but so far only made 4.. I keep on doing them when I'm bored of my crepe paper flowers, which seem to be taking forever!
