I made dragon eggs!!! Ok technically they are supposed to be pine cones but they definitely look like what I imagine dragon eggs look like.
Start with some squares of paper
Or alternately short lengths of ribbon (I used sticky back ribbon for extra ease)
Fold your ribbon or paper so you have a peak and pin them onto your styrofoam ball
Start with four “scales” all pointing towards one another, overlapping them in the center
Then cover your outside corners with four more
After that you can just start spiraling around with your “scales” being sure to overlap and cover your pins
It can be tedious
But so worth it
The if you want them as orniments simply find a means to hang them
For my first one (the ribbon dragon) I found one of the old drawer pulls from my infamous desk
I (ok my dad cause I was a scardey cat) drilled all the way through, I used some guilding wax on it and strung some twine through.
Then I just hot glued the repurposed handle to the top of the ball to create a hangar
