Project Instructions

    These instructions and supplies are for one ball and chain set. If you want more than one set, adjust the amount of supplies you buy and prepare those supplies accordingly.
  • 2
    Cut 1 inch x 9 inch strips from the Black craft foam sheet to create the individual links of the chain. Cut a 2 inch x 12 inch strip for the larger cuff at the end of the chain. Glue the ends of the foam strips together linking each strip into the next to complete the chain. Link the cuff through the last chain link and glue the ends to secure the cuff in place.
  • 3
    Completely cover a Styrofoam ball with strips of Black duck tape. Pull the tape around tightly trying to stretch out as many wrinkles as you can. Be sure to overlap each piece of tape for a secure hold.
  • 4
    Cut a 2 inch x 9 inch strip of craft foam. Link it through the end of the chain opposite the cuff and glue the ends to secure the link in place. Glue the 2 inch link to the ball and pin to secure in place.
