These would be so fun to have at a New Years Eve party with family and friends. Go here to find out how to make them
Edited to add:
Apparently the link does not link to the project and after searching and searching I can't find it again sorry about that.
Here are the directions as best I can remember them
You will need
crepe paper ( the kind you buy in a roll)
paper strips with fortunes written on them
start wrapping your ball so that all the white is covered. While wrapping put one or more fortunes in the ball. When you are done wrapping tie a ribbon around the ball. I can't remember if this was in the directions,but I think I would use a dab of glue on the end to hold it together. you could also use a straight pin.
Hope that helps and if anyone finds the link let me know ;)
