In the pictures I have given the designs I thought were the best for this project.
The first picture is my favourite and I have used it.
You can take any other design or make one of your own.

Make the holes on the places marked with a white dot.

Step 4: Putting the Zip Ties and Pencils

I put zip ties in the holes on each side of the three holes and a pencil in the middle.
This can be changed and the zip ties and pencils can be placed anywhere.
The first picture shows how I put it in one line. There are six such lines on one side of the ball.
Put the zip ties and pencils in all holes. The second picture shows the finished half.
Do the same on the other half.

Step 5: Attaching the Thread
