    Like these? I learned to make these in 4th grade. Make a bunch of 2 inch square fabric swatches. The take a styrofoam ball. Fold one fabric swatch in half, the fold down the two outer corners into the center then pin to the ball. Pin four corner pieces together in the center. Look at the pic for reference if you need. Then for the next layer pin the next set of squares, into the middle of each piece. Look at the pic to see where to attach the next set of swatches. When you have 3-4 layers, repeat on the other side. Then finish the piece with a coordinating ribbon.


     


    Good luck!
