SUPPLIES TOOLS:

  • FloraCraft&foam ball: 5"
  • Modeling paste
  • Pearl head pins
  • Acrylic paint: pink
  • Triple thick gloss glaze (optional)
  • Ribbon: 5/8&coordinating color
  • Sheer glittered ribbon
  • Chenille stem
  • Low-temp glue gun glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Flat paintbrush
  • Paint spatula or putty knife
  • Sponge
  • Wood skewer

DIRECTIONS:

1. Completely coat the ball with modeling paste. Modeling paste can be applied to foam a couple of different ways -- with a spatula or with a flat paintbrush. Be sure to mix the material before using. When using a spatula, apply a small amount of the modeling paste to the foam and spread it out evenly in all directions, working it into the cells of the foam. If using a paintbrush, load material onto the brush and spread it onto the foam smoothing out the lumps.
2. For a super smooth finish, wet sand or dry sand the modeling paste once applied. To wet sand, allow the material to dry partially. Dampen a sponge and very lightly smooth out any ridges. If the material is being removed while wiping with the sponge, allow it to dry a little more before wet sanding. To dry sand, let the material dry completely, then sand smooth with fine sandpaper. If the base coat is very rough, wet sand the deeper ridges, allow to dry completely, then dry sand to the desired finish.
3. Insert the skewer into the ball to use as a handle to paint the ball. Once the modeling paste is completely dry, paint the ball with acrylic paint. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle with fine glitter. The paint will secure the glitter in place as it dries. Apply an even coat of gloss glaze to the painted ball to finish and let dry (optional).
4. Embellish the ornament with ribbon tied into a bow at the top of the ball. Glue to secure in place.
5. Loop a chenille stem and insert into the top of the ball for the hanger. Use a pin and low-temp glue to secure.
