Supplies: tennis ball, plastic shopping bag, glow in the dark string, ribbon, scissors and tape.

Wrap the string and ribbon around the neck several times, tape, then continue to wrap the string around the head of the comet making sure its secure. You can attach a piece of clear tape around the head of the comet to make sure the lacing won’t slip.
