I got a glimpse of one of these in a window front at a Las Vegas store, it stayed on my mind all the way home. I wish I had paid more attention to the display. I believe there were 3 of them in different sizes hanging at different levels. So I had to make one. TaDa here it is and how I put it together
The one I am going to show how I made is from a 6″ styrofoam ball, the one on top is a 8″ ball.
6″ Styrofoam ball-Glue Gun-Bowl-Wooden Skewer Stick
Placing it in the bowl helps to hold it stable.After appling the glue apply pressure to the cork while it is sticking to the ball. I held each cork for about 10 seconds.
It took me approximately 155 corks and 90 minutes to finish the 6″ ball. I will let it set for a day then pull out the skewer stick fill hole with glue and poke in some rope or ribbon what ever would go with your decor.
I hope you also see the beauty in the ball, it is a fun piece.
