Styrofoam balls

How about a Christmas project on a budget?
Nice things don't necessarily have to be expensive, and on a budget does not necessarily mean cheap.
I started out with 4 styrofoam balls...find those at any craft and $ stores.
I found some nice ribbon I kept from years past. This ribbon is pliable, since it has two metal lines.
Here is what I made with $2

 Add made the bow with same ribbon.
This is now on our table, 
and I like it very much!
A quick project to cheer up any table!

Stay Frugal,

Quick and easy. I've always been a fan of the decorative balls in dishes, but they always seemed out of my price range. This, I can do! Thanks for sharing. :-)

I run a website (www.spunnys.com) that aims at showcasing simple crafts made with spun cotton balls. This is exactly the type of creative, inexpensive and simple ideas I am looking for. I love them. These could also easily be turned into beautiful christmas tree ornaments. Congrats.
