DIY Decorative Fabric Wrapped Balls

Hi there! If you remember, last month I participated in a new monthly themed series with a group of extremely talented other bloggers! We call ourselves #CreativeBuzz and today’s post is another super fun themed post for that series! We all had to come up with a post focusing on pastels. My creative juices started flowing immediately and I’ve been really wanting to make an elegant yet easy craft to share! So, here you have it! DIY Decorative Fabric Wrapped Balls, so cute, super easy and a great way to decorate for spring with pastels!

These are really easy and I’ve been seeing them all over the place. My favorite post highlighting this technique is from The Love Nerds with her Fabric Ball Spring Wreath!

Supplies Needed:
Fabric (I got mine cut into 9 inches off the bolt, this is the perfect length to wrap)
Styrofoam Balls (I used medium size)
Scissors
Ruler
Pins

Cut strips of fabric in to 1/2 inch pieces. Long enough so they wrap about the balls and overlap a little.
Wrap strip around ball and pin in place with one pin at the ends.

Continue pinning pieces of fabric in a criss cross pattern. This helps to secure the previous pieces.

Make sure none of the styrofoam is showing when you are done pinning the pieces. With the last strip of fabric, pin it on both ends of the ball so it is secure.

I placed my decorative fabric balls in a cute little vintage looking basket I picked up and put a couple wicker balls I had with it.

    Love this. I think I’ll use this tutorial to create some Easter eggs and flowers on the 11 Pastel post. Found this at Thrifty Thursday. Thanks for sharing.

    This would be a great way to use up scraps of material! Maybe even stained clothes and such. Great project!

    Wow, all you need to do is pin the ribbon in place? Awesome! I have some plain white decorative balls. I could definitely do this to mix things up!
