DIY Faux Cotton Boll Ball

Who doesn't love natural cotton right now? The price for anything cotton is a bit pricey though. When I got to looking for more natural cotton items online I decided to make my own. I've seen others make their own cotton stems but, I wanted a sphere/ball. The Dollar Tree sells a bag of 3 for a $1 and a bag of cotton balls is cheap! This cost about $1 or less to make!

You will need a Styrofoam ball, hot glue gun, cotton balls and pine cones.

Take 3-4 pine cone petals and hot glue them to a cotton ball.

You will then put some hot glue on the Styrofoam ball and hot glue the cotton ball with the pine cone petals to the Styrofoam ball. I poke the pine cone petals into the Styrofoam ball for extra support.

This is a picture so that you can see the pine cone petals poked into the Styrofoam ball.

Push them into the Styrofoam ball.

 Just keep doing this until you have  filled the whole ball! Doesn't it look realistic?

 You could add a hook or ribbon to these and hang them....so many possibilities!
