Decorative tack balls 7 for $20

This was easy but super time consuming.  In retrospect,  I would have done them all silver because the silver tacks have a flatter head than the colored ones so fit tighter on the ball.  They come out fabulous. But the colored ones are fun too.
Pack of Styrofoam balls.  (use the tighter kind not the spongy ones) (about  $4 for a pack  of big ones)
Tacks (colored or silver –  I used about 8 packs of 250 tacks)
Then you literally just push the pins into the balls.   Overlap them for a nice tight effect.  You will get the hang of it but I warn you it takes a long long time.
