Ball = Decor Ball

A Diamond in the Stuff – DIY Dollar Store Decorative Balls


Balls (I used Styrofoam balls)

Tissue Paper




1.  Cut background tissue paper into small enough shapes to lay somewhat smoothly on the surface.

2.  Paint decoupage onto a small area and apply your base color tissue paper to the ball.  Continue applying additional pieces, overlapping slightly, until the ball is covered.

3.  Cut design tissue paper into desired shapes.

4.  Paint decoupage onto areas of the background layer where you want to place your design colors and shapes.

5.  Give the balls a final coat of decoupage and let dry completely.  Now you have the perfect little (or medium or big) decor balls.

      Thank you, Zoe. Next time, I’m going to try using patterned tissue or napkins or at least have a picture of the animal print I’m trying to mimic. More than once while I was making these, I was thinking, “Oh boy, this isn’t working.” Be sure to check out my “inspiration” at A Diamond in the Stuff. Courtney’s look really cute.

    Now I feel like a bum! I just bought some already done at Michael’s, but in my defense I needed them for something the next day!
