So when I saw a Xmas decoration that looked like a ball of wool at a garden centre recently ,the brain started whirring.
The result,mini decorations of a ball of string and a roll of brown paper.
All you need to make these are ,string, brown paper,P VA glue and cotton balls(available from all good from craft shops)
Step 1- Roll a small piece of torn brown paper into a rough tube and glue to secure, set aside to dry
Step 2-Make a small hole in the top of the cotton ball and glue in a loop of string as a hanger.
Step 3-Smoother the cotton ball with PVA glue, then quickly wrap with string covering the ball completely
Step 4-Continue wrapping string around the ball in a more casual fashion to add texture, gluing as you go.
Step 5-Add a string bow to the top near the hanger
Step 6-Glue the tube of brown paper to the back of the ball of string.
Let it dry overnight ………Hang them on the tree. (note. The 20p is to show scale)
