Here's what you'll need:
  • Hot glue gun + sticks
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Styrofoam Ball (the one I used is about 3.5 inches wide)
  • 2 small sewing pins
  • Yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver in "Grenadine" "Cherry Red" and "Perfect Pink"
  • K (6.5 mm) crochet hook


Instructions for Roses:

Ch 12

Row 1: Work a 3 dc in the third ch from the hook.  *Work 3 dc in the next ch.  Repeat from * across in each ch.

Fasten off and leave tails for now.  Coil your "curlicue" shape into a rose shape.  Make enough to cover the ball.  Secure with pins temporarily if needed.

Instructions for Assembly:

  • Using the sewing pins, tack down and glue a ribbon loop at the top of the ball for hanging.
  • Hot glue roses all over ball, tucking in tails underneath and taking care not to have two of the same colors side by side.  
  • Let ball cool and dry completely before hanging.
