instructions

  1. Basecoat the headband and all nine of the styrofoam balls in your choice of FolkArt Color Shift paint.  
  2. Once the paint has dried, add a layer of FolkArt Extreme Glitter onto the headband as well as the styrofoam balls.  
  3. Make the following cuts out of the black and white fabric:  3 large white circles, 3 medium black circles, 3 medium white circles, 3 small black circles  
  4. Use Mod Podge Matte to glue/attach the following cuts together: 3 medium black circles should go on top of the 3 large white circles, 3 small black circles should go on top of the 3 medium white circles 
  5. Match the size of the fabric eyes to the large and medium styrofoam balls, then use Mod Podge Matte to glue them on. The smaller styrofoam balls should be left blank.  
  6. Stack three styrofoam balls on top of each other in order from largest to the smallest. Use a toothpick to hold them in place and to attach them to one another. Repeat this same step with the remaining six styrofoam balls.  
  7. Use hot glue to attach each of the styrofoam ball stacks onto the headband.  
  8. ​Once everything is dried, paint the entire headband, including the styrofoam balls, with Mod Podge Glow In The Dark. You can repeat this step as needed to achieve full coverage.
