Do you have fabric scraps at home? Put these to good use and make a refreshing home decor. Gather the family and make this project a group effort!


  • Styrofoam ball
  • Glue
  • Thumbtacks
  • Ribbon
  • Old polo shirt or any scrap of fabric
  • Scissors
  • Tailo's chalk
  • Drinking glass


Prepare the fabric.

Using the mouth of the drinking glass, trace circles using tailor’s chalk onto the fabric. Make lots it, depending on how big the foam is. Cut out the circles. Set aside.

Work with the ribbon.

Tie the ribbon on the Styrofoam ball. Pull ends and make a knot on the bottom and on the top of the ball. Leave a strand that will serve as the string.

Stick the fabric to the ball.

Get a piece of round fabric and poke the thumbtack at the center. Add a drop of glue to the back where it was poked through.

Cover the whole ball.

Push it onto the Styrofoam. Repeat until you cover the whole ball, making each piece of fabric overlap with the half of the previous circle patch.

Don't forget to close the gaps.

To create depth and close gaps, glue where circle ends meet. Set aside to dry before hanging it on the ceiling.

Tip: Make the hanging ball look fluffier by putting more patches and make the gaps smaller.

Finished product

You may choose to add this piece to your bedroom or living room.
