I found some thick hemp cording at Wal-Mart in the craft section……or maybe it was with the jewelry supplies. I started by smashing one end of the cord into the styrofoam ball, nice and flush with the surface of the ball………..so that I wouldn’t have a lump after I started winding.

Then added more glue as I went, and winded more and more cord, flush against the ball. I kept winding, only using a little glue at a time (maybe 4 or 5 inch narrow line of glue on the ball, right next to the cording), and then pressed the cord nice and tight to the ball.
I kept winding, and kept it pretty tight. And then glue and wind the last bit down. Audible gasp. Re-purposing: Tshirts into 5-strand-braided-headbands. I was walking through Target a few weeks ago and noticed this little knit fabric headband that was not just braided together…….but woven.
