Print the pattern and cut around the outer circle. Trace around the pattern circle onto the cardboard and cut out the cardboard circle. Place pattern over the cardboard circle, and using a pen trace over the pattern, pressing firmly to create indents in the cardboard below. Remove the pattern and lightly trace the indents with a pencil to make them easier to see. Cut construction paper into strips, and then into squares.
Begin with the blue. Use a glue stick to makes sections of the ocean sticky, then place the blue squares onto the glue. Overlap the edges and leave a space between each square. When finished with the oceans, start gluing on the green land, you can mix in some brown as well into the land masses. Lastly, cover the top section with white squares and add a few white squares around the earth for clouds.
Turn the completed earth over and trim all the excess construction paper around the circle. Fold the piece of yarn in half and wrap a piece of tape around the open ends, closing them together. Thread the pony beads on to the yarn. Move the beads up the yarn until you have just a few inches of excess at the top of the hanger. Tie a knot just below the bottom of the beads and tape to the back of the earth. You can reinforce it by gluing a piece of cardboard over the yarn. Trim off the excess yarn.
