I was visiting my friend Gayle and found these beautifully decorated balls all around her home. Of course I was amazed when she explained how they were created by an old Japanese art called Temari. You start with Styrofoam balls add colorful threads and just follow the directions. What a great way to use up all those threads we have laying around! There are several books on the topic; if your local fabric or craft shop doesn’t carry them, they can order them for you. So go ahead …amaze yourself!
