Step 11:

Add the last two pieces (the ones without the 1x4 bricks attached) to the top and bottom of the model and you've got yourself a pretty awesome Lego ball. 

I think this red one would make a great clown nose for a giant Lego sculpture. What kind of uses can you think of? If you make a Lego ball with the help of this Instructable, I would love to see it posted in the comments. 
<p>Thanks for sharing. Found this after watching Adam from Mythbusters build a slightly larger version on Tested. </p><p><a href="http://www.tested.com/art/lego/567839-adam-savages-one-day-builds-lego-sisyphus-automata/" rel="nofollow">http://www.tested.com/art/lego/567839-adam-savages...</a></p>
<p>I made it on LDD (LEGO digital designer) and as soon as I got to step 8 I was like, thank god for copy and paste!</p>
super cool!
<p>Hello! I was wondering if you might be able to guide me (and my kids) as to how to make these awesome chocolate chip cookies out of legos? I assume there is a way something similar to how this ball is made... but I can't quite wrap my mind around it. I am the (newbie) Coach for our Lego League Team this year, and it would be SO awesome if the kids could make these for their Lego Tournament Presentation in a few weeks. Thanks for any help you could offer! :D</p>
<p>cool I never thought to make a ball with my square toys.</p>
<p>I'm very grateful for the instructions on this sphere. I normally make Lego mosaic portraits so working on a 3D light bulb was a challenge, but I applied the concept and here's what I have so far... Thank you again! -Brian from www.Brickworkz.com</p>
The red could be a meteor
turn it grey and u have Lego Indiana Jones
Awsome ball- i finished all the sides but i cant find any of the 1x4 bricks with knobs :( . <br>I did manage to stick it together with tape but it was flimsy, i am still looking through my lego to find them. <br> <br>Very cool.
LoL frog has a tounge XD
this has indiana jones written all over it.
Good thinking! Much better than the one that comes in the temple run set <a href="http://www.geekologie.com/2008/01/04/indy-escape.jpg">here.</a>&nbsp;
exactly ;-0 ;
Awesome! How heavy is it, could it possibly be a christmas tree ornament?
It's hollow so it's not too heavy. LEGO actually featured a similar ball on the cover of a catalog a few years ago but didn't tell how to construct it or even sell the set! You can see it here:&nbsp;<a href="http://cache.lego.com/2057/images/shop/LandingPages/Ornament/catalog_278x348.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://cache.lego.com/2057/images/shop/LandingPages/Ornament/catalog_278x348.jpg</a>. I like the ribbon they use but I'm not sure how they attached it and I would probably use one of these&nbsp;<a href="http://media.peeron.com/pics/inv/custpics/2376.1072149497.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://media.peeron.com/pics/inv/custpics/2376.1072149497.jpg</a>&nbsp;to hang it or to attach a hook or ribbon to.&nbsp;
Once again, you make an amazing shape!
Thanks. I realized I must be really into shapes lately after I reviewed my recent projects lol
Great! I am to give a try now.
cool i made 1 like this a few years back only mine was smooth i love the pics!!!
Smooth? Like you covered it in tiles?
not quite like that but if i find it i will show you what i mean
Isn't this just a lowell sphere? Either way nice job bringing it to the Instructables community, and great, easy instructions!<br><br> -Carl
@Sherrycayheyhey; Hi! Very clear instructions and photos. I love the little Lego man rolling the big Lego ball. Sort of a Lego Sisyphus! Cheers! Site
OK now i actually was planning on making an instructable on this :P<br><br>good job!
ya snooze ya lose :)
Meh.
Very similar to the mini Lego Death Star:<br>http://web.me.com/chrismcveigh/mintinbox/home/Entries/2010/11/29_Lego_Death_Star_Ornament.html<br><br>and his other Lego tree ornaments:<br>http://www.chrismcveigh.com/cm/lego_ornaments.html
Ah, came here to post just this. I ordered the parts for the Death Star ornament, it does not disappoint. At all.
You never cease to amaze me with these awesome designs!
such kind words, thank you
*blushing* :P thanks!
WOW! this is AWESOME!!!!!!!<br>
glad you like it, thank you
Oops! I think you meant to say &quot;2x8&quot; instead of &quot;2x6&quot; in this step (and step 10). Otherwise, an excellent instructable that we just may try to do! Love the &quot;this-plus-this-equals-that&quot; photos...
Thank you for catching that, fixed now :)
Ha, crazy! I love the little lego man's expressions when he is interacting with the ball.
Well it's heavy for a minifig haha
