I made these out of exercise balls and hula hoops. Hung it on the outside of my house so hoping they will hold up!
Bought an exercise ball and hula hoop. Slid hula hoop halfway down. Had to separate it a little bit and then glue if it didn't fit, depending on size of the ball. Then spray-painted it, free handed the black part, sprayed with sealant and hung with big bows
Suggested materials:
  • Hula hoop, exercise ball, metallic spray paint. Black craft paint. Spray sealant.   (exercise ball, metallic spray paint. Black craft paint. Spray sealant.)

      I just saw this wonderful project also. It looks like the bows are made out of that stiff mesh ribbon. I would attach them with glue and you could also make a hanger out of rope and attach with glue also.
