Garden Ball Decoration
This year I was thrilled to get these old bowling balls at tag sales. I’ve been looking for them for years and then this year I get 5 of them and a bag full of the duck pin bowling balls also AND a full set of Bocce balls in a case. It’s the best! I love to take old stuff and turn it into decorative or useful new stuff.
Michele, my niece, and I made decorative balls for the garden so this is what we did with 2 of the big bowling balls...
We started by lightly sanding the bowling balls so that the glue would stick really well.
Then we accumulated glass stones (which you can buy in Walmart, Target, or anywhere. We also bought some small colored stones from Petco.
When we went to Home Depot for the stones and the glue a fella there told us to get Power Grab glue so that’s what we used for this project.
Michele, my trusty crafter buddy, is all set up here. We put the balls on flower pots so that they wouldn’t roll around while we worked on them.
