Its So Very Creative Balls Balls everywhere

by CHERI on May 3, 2010

WAIT  TILL you see what I made?

No not this:

I know you have seen these at the PB.

They are all over the internet and blogland. They add that perfect, simple decorative touch.

You can cover them in shells, moss, feathers, wood, jute…the possibilities are endless.

I love these too–

I decided to create one this weekend.
Do you want a peak?

OK-but I will have to show you tomorrow–every time I try to add a picture from my computer it won’t go in-ugh!!! and Prince Charming is asleep and he might get grumpy if I woke him up for this. Sweet Dreams baby.

It really came out cute-I love it — I hope you will  come back by tomorrow to see my Nautical themed sphere.

There were a few things that didn’t get moved with my new host site and I could not add pictures to my post. It is all fixed now so I can finally show my project from Monday-Its So Very Creative.

I made a cool nautical sphere–

I started with a styrofoam ball and covered it in hemp rope.

then added a think jute rope-creating a cool top on the sphere.

I cut a lot of hemp and made a double braid–using 6 strand instead of 3, then braided 3 of those together.

I mixed some jute and hemp around the ball.

I picked up the candle stand at a thrift store and placed the sphere on top of it–LOVING IT!!

I hope everyone is finishing up their projects for the big event this Friday.  It will be so exciting.  We can’t wait to see all your projects.

I will post to some of these parties:
