Time to CompleteIn an evening
- Styrofoam balls (any size)
- Styrofoam tool set (this is the best tool for the job) (you can also try a butter knife)

DIY Project Instructions
Wrap twine around the Styrofoam ball as a guide.
Use the foam tool or a butter knife to score the foam beside the twine.
Remove twine and make score line deeper with the tool.
Repeat process to get three lines that go all the way around the ball and are approximately evenly spaced.
Lay plaid or burlap over one section that you have created. Stuff the fabric into the line a little all the way around.
