I'm a cheater, but I enjoy it. I use an old ball from a mouse. It adds a ton of weight and you have yourself a perfect sphere to work with from the start. Just do NOT throw it at anyone without they knowing it. The steel ball on the inside can pack a punch even with three or four inches of rubber band.

To make it completely with rubber bands (I've done it, my ball is about 2-3 inches in diameter), you must knot rubber bands and be very patient. It looks much neater, and you also have a whole bunch of rubber bands handy. I should really continue my ball...
