Step 1: Supplies

Newspaper
Binder gum
Water
Scissor
Round Nose plier
A pair of earing hooks
2 small piece wire -not in pic
A thick sewing needle
Thin Painting brush
Favicryl colours
3D glitter color - tube
Perl drop color - tube/Pen

Sorry about the poor quality pictures :(

Step 2: Cut

Cut the news paper in small pieces. Mix a little bit binder gum (about 1 table spoon)with water and soak the news paper pieces for a couple of hours.Drain the water and grind it to a paste.The paper pulp should not be watery.


Step 3: Make balls

Using your hands make small balls.The size of the ball is up to you.If you want  you can make different sizes.Dry them  until they are stiff.I kept them to dry over night.

Step 4: Make loop

With the nose plier make a tiny loop with  wire and twist the ends together.Insert the pin on the paper ball to make a thin hole.Since the paper ball is well dried,you will find it a bit hard to prick,so do it carefully with out breaking the ball..Dip the twisted loop in binder gum and insert the loop  right in.Leave it to dry over night or couple of hours until it is well dried ..Don't worry once it dries it is very hard.
