5. Place balls on baking sheets and allow to dry overnight.
6. Arrange the balls on a flat surface in rows in a pattern that suits you. Be sure to line them up randomly and vary the sizes in each row.

7. Begin stringing the balls onto fishing line by inserting the upholstery needle with fishing line attached into the center of one the foam balls (Image 1). Next add a straw and continue alternating until you reach the length of the window (Image 2).

8. On the next string begin with a snowball, but cut the first straw in half and retain the other half for the top of the string. This will allow the balls to hang at alternating levels from one string to the next. Continue alternating the beginning straw from whole to half as you complete the remaining strings.
9. When you have completed all the strings, tie them to a tension rod that you have installed in the window. Hang the first string about 2 inches in from the window. Every strand after that should hang about 4 inches apart.
