How to Weave a Paper Ball Ornament

How to Weave a Paper Ball Ornament
When I was in Thailand, I would see the local people weave palm leaves into beautiful bowls, fans, balls and other amazing things. I asked my aunt if she knew how to make these things and she gave me a book that was all in Thai. I don't know how to read Thai, I can barely speak it. Part 1 (Four strand braid) Part 2 (Paper weaving)

DIY festive streamer backdrop from Rachel of Heart of Light | Details + Decor, DIY Wedding We’re all so excited for this tutorial this morning, aren’t we? Rachel‘s super super cute wedding really came together with her “statement” project… the streamer backdrop. We’ll let Rachel take it from here! We knew we needed some kind of backdrop for the ceremony, because the layout of the venue had us getting married in sort of an awkward location. We thought about painting a sheet, just as we did the tablecloths, and I still think that would have been a great option. Please note, if you have extreme color matching needs, they will not be satisfied by the usual suppliers of cheap crepe paper. Supplies: Wooden dowels, in the length you need to cover (we had two 5′ dowels and three 3′ dowels) – $5 Hot glue gun + glue (already had the gun) ~ $10 on glue sticks Crepe paper folds (I used 27 packages for a lot of coverage) $40 Additional fancy crepe paper (if desired) $50 (you don’t need as much as I bought!) 1. I bought plenty of cheap crepe paper from this store and they ship really fast!

How to make 3D paper ball ornaments I love 3D paper things. Love. And when I saw a little picture of what appeared to be paper balls in a CB2 catalog, I thought, "I am going to make those." So the other day while Alex was writing a paper about mysterious things like polymers and flexible films and tactoids, I made a paper ball. These are made from 12 slotted flower shapes that fit together to form a sphere. Download the PDF templates here:Large ball (10")– print/cut 12 sheetsMedium ball (5")– print/cut 2 sheetsSmall ball (3")– print/cut 1 sheet Download a Silhouette .studio file here:Small ball (3")– unzip the file; cut 1 sheet. If you want to hang your ornament, you might like to add the string before assembling the ball. Use the slits to join petals together. It might be helpful to think of the first piece as the "north pole," and then add a row of five flowers encircling it. Attach the next row of five flower shapes, and finally, add the "south pole" piece to finish the globe.
