Styrofoam ball pen holder

Slam Alikom All,

Today, I wanna share with you a very easy DIY project.

A Styrofoam ball pen holder.

Materials needed:
1-Styrofoam ball
2-hot glue gun
3-Small  jar lid "I used the lid of Gerber baby food Jar.
4-Ribbon.


Steps:
1-Use the pen" that you will put later in the holder" to make a hole in your foam ball, just take the pen and push it through the ball but don't make it so deep though.

2-Use your hot glue gun and glue the ball to the Jar lid.
3- Test the stability of your holder now, do that by putting the pen in the holder and see if it could stand alone or not,if it is not stable try to adjust the hole again but moving your pen in the hole to the side a little bit.
4-Now your holder is ready and you only need to embellish it with ribbon and stickers of your choice.
5- Use your glue gun to glue the ribbon around the ball try to cover the Jar lid and the edge between the ball and the Lid.
