  • Cut sports-themed ball in half with the sharp knife. Cut small slits on top of each half big enough for the headband to slide through and fit snugly.

  • Secure headband by wrapping a rubber band on each side of the headband within each half of the ball to ensure that the headband does not slide out.

  • Add the stuffing to the inside of each half of the ball.

Step 2
