• 1 round foam ball
  • 20 pieces of cardboards
  • 1 20 cm string


  1. Using a hole punch cut different colour cardboard out.
  2. Then starting from the top stick the circles from top to bottom.
  3. Then add the string.


I love making craft and I always had lots of little pieces of cardboard left over I didn't want to throw out so I found this idea. My kids and I make heaps of these with all the left over pieces and it looks very effective on our christmas tree.
