Rice Christmas Ball

About: I love creating. I love ART in all its forms. I am a daughter of the 50s, born in 1992. I had the pleasure to be a Featured Author on this fabulous site, and you can read my interview here: https://www.ins...

This Christmas ball is very nice and not too hard to make!
Here is how I made it:
I created the base covering a small balloon with papier mache. I made 3/4 layers and let it dry.
Now the fun/hard part (it depends on you!): I took a dish, anything big enough to contain the ball, and put some rice in it. I covered the ball with white glue then put it in the dish with the rice. Sticking the rice to the ball was pretty hard for me to do but after some time and with a lot of patience, I was finally able to cover the whole ball with rice. 
Once dry, I sprayed gold paint on it...and voilà!
