Step 1: Filling the Balls

In order to fill the balls:

  1. Mix the cellophane strips with the flax fiber
  2. Fill the balls with the filling made in the previous step
  3. Add the 2 foam balls inside the balls

Repeat these steps for all the four balls.

Step 2: Use the Fairy Lights

  1. Take one big ball and put 4 consecutive led lights inside (as show in the image - start here).
  2. Leave the 5th light outside and then close that ball
  3. Take a small ball and put the next 4 consecutive led lights inside.
  4. Again, leave the 5th light outside and close the ball.
  5. Repeat this process for the next 2 balls.

As a result, all the four balls should be linked by the fairy lights.

Step 3: Add Flax Fiber Yarn

  • Make a knot in the ball hook and repeat this process for all the balls.
  • Leave a space of 5 centimeters between them and try to roll the fairy light with the yarn (as it shown in the image).
  • At the end make another knot (example) which will work in order to hang it on to the wall.

We also glued a star of foamix to complete our ornament and voila!! Our ornament is ready to decorate our home :).
