So--I had been admiring THESE awesome decorative Hemp Balls from my most favorite Blog: Make it and Love it. AND so I went to go buy all the ingredients to make them--and everything was SO PRICEY!! Walmart wanted almost $3/Styrofoam ball!!! And the Hemp cording was almost $6.
So all of a sudden I changed my mind and decided I would try and live with out them.
Then--I happened to be in the hardware section of Walmart and saw this little bundle of JUTE. Not quite as nice as Hemp--but only $1.75.
I decided that maybe I could find a different round object to use instead of the Styrofoam.
I searched a little bit until I found these wiffle balls at the dollar store for 5 for $1.So with Glue gun in hand--I started winding around and around and around and around...etc.
I just glued down all the jute and it went fine right over the holes too.
Here are some of the finished little guys WITH OUT their paint jobs.
I couldn't decide whether to leave them as they were or give them some color like the Make it and Love it gal did.
I decided to add color to a few of them and leave a few plain--so I could have the best of both worlds.
I didn't have any spray paint in the colors I wanted to I painted them with Craft paint that I already had.
And Viola---the finished project.And isn't that a cute little pedastal they are sitting on? I found it at my favorite thrift store for $0.25!!! It was gold and I spray painted it!! I will post those before and afters soon!!
