Plastic Bag Decorative Balls DIY

I don't know why I have such an affinity for making decorative balls, but I do!  I'll hot glue anything to a foam ball and call it pretty!  Here is a DIY decorative ball accessory from plastic bags, and it helps keep a few plastic bags out of the landfill.  Just an extra little added bonus! 
First here are the things you need:

-Foam Balls
-Plastic Bags
-Stick Pins

These are pretty simple to create, and fun to do.  First cut your plastic bag into about 1" strips

Open the strips up, (they should be circles) then cut them, and tie three strips together with a knot at the end,

Braid the strips.  Wrap the strips around the foam ball, securing with stick pins as you go.  Keep going until the ball is completely covered. 

All done!  Enjoy!

Happy renewing and redoing!
