Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jute

Jute has become our favorite natural fiber to work with (now there aren't many out there), but hey! jute deserves some loving. It's been so good to us.

Our magical bean balls were just that--magical. We decided to use our go-to fiber to make these even better (better, better, better!!!)

Hey Jute!

Just get your handy-dandy glue gun and start by glueing the jute to one end of the styrofoam ball. The hot glue is very forgiving of mistakes (oops) we made.

 Jute balls + leaves = huge success

The CopyCat Rundown:

Total Cost: Large Styrofoam balls: $1 each, Small Styrofoam ball: 50 cents,  Spool of jute: $6. Total cost of $8.50, but there's plenty of jute for future projects. : )

Total Time: These take less time than the bean balls, which is a good thing. About 15 minutes for a small ball and 25 for a large ball.

Would we do this craft again: Already planning on doing more!
