It can be bought in the official store with a big logo on it, but I wanted to have one that looks exactly like the one on the show. So after a long time of searching through pet stores, I thought of a way how to make it myself.
Btw if you know where to find or how to make the grey saucer, please tell me.
Step 1: What you need
- red and grey wool roving
- white Casein paint
- Styrofoam Ball (the diameter depends a bit on your taste, it grows notably between the first and the second season, mine is 12 cm)
- olive oil soap
- white vinegar
- Felting Needle (If you are not that familiar with felting get more than one because they break very easy)
- small paint brush
Step 2: Trace the template
Make a stencil out of aluminium foil or anything, that you can place on the ball and trace the outline. Then use a ruler in order to trace the other line.
Step 3: Needle felting
When you are happy with your first side, do the same for the second side.
If the small holes don't bother you (or you are just lazy ;-)) simply skip the next step.
