I went DECOR BALL CRAZY! After seeing these:
I knew I wanted to hop on the wagon and try it out too!!! I also found this picture at Target!And so it begins...I bought my styrafoam balls at the DOLLAR STORE (2/$1)! I got these sticks from my front yard:
Covered the styrafoam with MOSS (also from the DOLLAR STORE).
Covered one in Green Split Peas!
One with Spray-Painted Rope!
One wrapped in this HEMP string:
Start like so...and just keep on going...and going...and, um...going.
One covered in Raffia and tied with a Letter P and a ribbon:
One with little Sea Shells Galore!
One with BIG sea shells (and filled in the ugly gaps with little ones)BEACHY!
Took this DOLLAR STORE basket and took out the weaving:
Spray Painted one ball brown, and then spray painted the WEAVE I took out of the basket just a little greener.
I wrapped the "weave" around the ball once and cut it and glued and then did that about 8 times in all different directions then I actually started weaving a few of the peices, and then I cut really SMALL pieces to FILL IN the bigger gaps:
TA DUH!Only a few glue gun blisters later...
Was it worth it? Yes
Do I still have more to make? Plenty
But at least I've got a start! (I'm thinking different colors of the basket weaves!)
