Simply affix each mirrored tile to the styrofoam ball, using the hot glue gun, until the entirety of the ball is covered. To hang the disco ball, leave a bit of space to attach a sturdy hook.
Note: Be cautious with the mirrored tiles, as the sharp edges could possibly be harmful. Use a reserved amount of the glue for each respective piece.
Cut the thicker pieces of tinsel (or the metallic foil paper) into 1-inch squares and glue each piece onto the ornament, so that one slightly overlaps the other. Once the ornament is completely covered, string the monofilament through, and hang!
Try making a number of these mini disco balls to hang along a wall at varying heights, for a truly spectacular effect!
