Sea Urchin Balls

These balls are great for indoor games and outdoor water fights.

Using scissors cut used carpet padding into a 1 square foot piece, then cut the square into twenty-four ½-inch wide strips. Cut each strip in half to make forty-eight 6-inch strips.

Stack the strips centered over a twist tie laying flat on a hard, stable surface. Tightly twist the tie around the center of the stack. Pull, twist and turn the strips until you have a ball.

About Kat

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.
