This is a ball that I made a while ago, they really are quite easy to make and you could do any colour that you want. You just have a few petal shapes of fabric and sew them together, I got a free pattern from the internet to do this ball.
I made this artwork of a tree using scrunched up black paper to make the trunk. I used pipe cleaners to make some branches and to make the mouth. I used cotton wool to decorate the bottom of the tree and the top. I also added some googlie eyes. I stuck the tree onto a round paper plate to make it steady.
