 Christmas balls with your own hands

Christmas balls with your own hands

Before you make a Christmas ball with your own hands, you will need to prepare the basis for creativity. You will need:

  • thick threads or a rope (for example, twine);
  • a usual round balloon;
  • satin ribbon or ribbon;
  • decoration (for example, a miniature bunch of flowers);
  • gold, silver or any other paint;
  • PVA glue, brush and scissors.

Materials for crafts

Instead of the PVA glue, you can use homemade paste, which is boiled from flour or starch.The main thing is that it should be viscous enough, otherwise the product will dry for a very long time and may lose shape.

We inflate the balloon to the size that we want to receive the New Year ball. We tied with a thread.

Begin to wind this ball with a rope prepared. The number of turns depends on its thickness - dense, thick twine can be wound with just a few layers, in the form of a cobweb. He will keep his shape anyway. And thinner threads (for example, knitting yarn) must be applied with a thicker layer, otherwise the ball will quickly deform afterwards.

We coat each layer of glue well with glue. Twine should be drunk especially carefully, because its fibers are sufficiently dense, and poorly absorb liquid. In order not to contaminate the working surface, it is possible to fix the ball in some container (for example, a cup or a glass jar), and turn over as it becomes impregnated. A well-lubricated ball is left to be dried away from the central heating radiators,because close to them he can let the air out.

When the glue dries even in the deepest layers, the ball will need to be pierced with a needle and carefully removed. We will have the rope frame of the Christmas ball.

Now we need to give it a more festive and elegant look. To do this, we cover the thread with a layer of gold or any other previously prepared paint. Dry it well.

Color the ball

We fasten together two bunches of flowers, which we have prepared in advance, and tie ribbon in a neat bow.
