New Year's ball of thread

New Year is a magical holiday! Not only kids, but also adults are waiting for him. And to decorate the Christmas tree with toys, a garland and tinsel is a very exciting experience. Especially when you do it with your children. On the eve of the New 2017, a contest of Christmas toys for the Christmas tree began in our kindergarten. So my eldest son and I decided to take part in it. We chose for a long time what kind of Christmas toy we could make. In the end, opted for a Christmas ball made of thread. When I was at school, we did such things in the circle "Skillful pens." To make our Christmas tree ball we need the following:
  • balloon;
  • yarn or dense threads;
  • PVA glue and super glue;
  • bangles;
  • tinsel;
  • li>
  • sequins;
  • a needle with a wide eyelet
  • a greasy cream

1. To start, you need to inflate the ball to the size we need. Remember that the size of the ball directly depends on the size of the future toy.

2. Then we grease our inflatable ball with a fat children's cream.It is even better to lubricate it with petroleum jelly, but, unfortunately, my house does not have it in stock. This is done to ensure that the thread is easily left behind by the ball after drying, by which we wind it.  New Year's ball of threads
3. Next, we introduce a thread into the eye of the needle and pierce the bottle with the PVA glue, approximately in the middle, so that the thread of the yarn, passing through it, gets wet.

As a result, our balloon should be well wound and look a bit like a cocoon. Cut the thread and glue it to the top of the ball.

5. While the threads do not dry, sprinkle the ball with sparkles, which you can make yourself from tinsel or rain. But you can do without it. My son and I decided to sprinkle it so that our Christmas ball would be brighter and more beautiful.

6.Everything, now we need to leave to dry for about a day. The next day we neatly pierced the ball with a needle and removed it from the workpiece - the “cocoon”.

7. Here begins the most interesting thing, namely the decoration of the toy. We make flowers from the ribbons - just twisting. We had a blue ribbon in our homes, which is why we have blue flowers. And gently using super glue to glue them to the ball- "cocoon" in a chaotic manner.

9. From the top of the "cocoon", where the balloon was tied, it turned out not very beautiful, so we simultaneously masked and decorated this place with a curled narrow ribbon and a big shiny button.

10.And that our ball-toy could be hung on the New Year tree, we make a loop also from the ribbon, only green, so as not to merge with the flowers, and decorate it with a small fragment of tinsel. The size of the loop should depend on the size of the toy.

11. So that our ball could not only be hung on a Christmas tree, but also put in place for interior decoration, we glued a little green tinsel from below. And that's what we got.

We do not know yet whether our ball toy will take any prize place in the contest in kindergarten, so as the competition is not over yet. But my eldest son said that we had made the most beautiful ball with him, he had never seen so beautiful before. And for me this is the best praise.All with the upcoming New Year 2017 !!!
