Step one: Take 2 cupcake liners and stick a pin through the center of them…
Step 2: Fold/scrunch the 2 liners around the pin like so…
Step three: Put a dab of hot glue on the tip of the liners…
Step four: Insert the pin into the styrofoam ball…
Step four: Push the pin all the way into the styrofoam so the cupcake liners are securely glued to the ball…Photobucket
Step five: Carefully open the liners making sure the pin is all the way inserted into the styrofoam. If it isn’t, push it all the way in….
Step six: Repeat until the whole ball is covered with lovely cupcake liners! Attach fishing line or a ribbon to hang! {For this particular pom pom I left a space uncovered so I could set the ball on a large glass candlestick}…
