- Take toothpicks and stick them into the styrofoam ball so that the entire ball is fairly densely covered with toothpicks (approximately a ¼” spacing between the tops of the toothpicks).
- Take gold spray paint and paint the top half of the foam ball and tooth picks.
- Wait for the paint to dry and flip the foam ball over and paint the entire other side so that the styrofoam ball and toothpicks are fully covered in gold paint. Depending on how heavy you apply the paint it might be necessary to do a second coat of paint on both sides.
- 1” Styrofoam ball
