Coffee Filter Ball

Love the way this coffee filter ball turned out.

You'll need:

- A Styrofoam ball (I used one of my kids foam ball, which they don't play with anymore)
- Coffee Filters, the number of filters depends on how dense you want your ball to look like.
- Glue.

-Take a coffee filter and fold in half.

-Then fold from one edge and bring to the center, just like the picture below.
- Fold from the other edge and bring it to the center too.

- Apply a little glue at the tip of the filter and glue it to the ball. I forgot to take a picture of this step.
- Keep folding the filters and gluing it to the ball till the ball is all covered. Remember to glue the filters close by, so that the ball looks fuller and you cannot see any gaps. And that is it!

Linking this to these awesome parties here, here and here.
