Materials Needed:

1-1/2 to 2″ White Styrofoam Balls found at any craft store.
Square Toothpicks found at Staples.
Krylon Glitter Blast Golden Glow Spray Paint found at Amazon for Styrofoam Balls.
Rust-Oleum Metallic Gold Spray Paint found at Amazon for Toothpicks.


1.  Cover your work surface completely.

2.  Spray paint your Styrofoam Balls with Krylon Glitter Blast Gold Glow Spray Paint holding your can 12-18″ away from the ball as the force of air will make an indentation in the Styrofoam.

3.  Spray paint your Toothpicks with Rust-Oleum Metallic Gold Spray Paint.

4.  Wait for paint to dry.

5.  Push a generous number of toothpicks into your Styrofoam Balls until you have your desired look.
