Insert Top and Side 3/8-Inch Dowels
Thinking of the foam sphere as a clock with 12 hours, insert first dowel at 12:00, the very top center of the sphere (Image 1). Using placement of the first 3/8" dowel as a guide, insert dowels into foam sphere at 1:30, 3:00, 4:30, 7:30, 9:00 and 10:30 (Image 2). Note: The bottom 6:00 position is left open for placement atop the tree.
Insert Front and Back 3/8-Inch Dowels
Insert a 3/8" dowel in the center of the front of the foam floral sphere and another 3/8" dowel in the center of the back of the sphere.
Secure Dowels With Glue
Remove each 3/8" dowel from foam sphere, then add a dollop of hot glue to its tip (Image 1). Re-insert each 3/8" dowel into its previous position, ensuring a tight, secure fit. Once in place, add hot glue around the space between the foam sphere and the replaced dowel (Image 2). Note: This extra layer of glue will add more stability to each dowel.
