You will need : yarn, foam pieces, scissors, Styrofoam balls (I used 3 inch balls), pipe stem cleaners, in the picture I show a glue gun, but craft glue works better, and piece of cardboard 5 1/2 inches long.
Wrap the yarn around the card board about 100 times. Tie a string in the middle.
Turn the cardboard over (opposite of the side with the tie)
Take the Stryofoam ball and put glue on the top half.
Grab the top of the yarn strands above the knot and spread the bottom strands over the ball.
Let the top strands go and arrange evenly around the ball.
Trim any pieces of yarn that may be too long or uneven.
Then decorate. We added feet by cutting out some feet shapes from the foam and gluing them
to the bottom. We also added arms , eyes, nose, mouth and antennae.
