Step 1: Tools And Supplies You Will Need

Your need an old dish towel, a tennis ball and a pair of scissors to cut a hole in the ball. You can use a drill if you have it. The hemostat clamps are optional, but it makes pulling the strips through the ball easier. If you don't have a pair of hemostats, you can use a screw driver to push the dish towel strips through the ball.

Step 2: Cutting The Ball

Take your scissors & carefully cut two holes in either side of the tennis ball. If you have a drill, you will drill the holes.

Step 3: Cutting The Dishtowel Strips

Cut three 2 inch strips from the dish towel on the long side. Bundle the strips and place a knot at one end of the bundle. Poke the hemostat through both ends of the tennis ball, grasp the end of one of the strips and pull the strip through the holes. repeat this for the other two strips

Step 4: Braiding The Dish Towel Strips
