Decorative Garden Ball

DECORATIVE GARDEN BALL

This is probably one of the easiest projects I’ve done in awhile. Gotta love those, right?!  While on a recent trip to my local craft store I was walking down the aisle and came across these flat bottom baubles in the floral section.  I thought they were pretty and knew I needed to do something with them. So a Decorative Garden Ball was what I came up with and I love it!  Now I’m just counting the days until Spring!!

Supplies needed to make this project:

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Balls: Any Size
  • Glass Gem Vase Filler – Any Color
  • Low-Temp Glue Gun & Glue

Seriously, look at how pretty these baubles are!!

Instructions:

Attach gems to the foam ball using low-temp glue…it’s that easy!!  I really didn’t have an order when adding them to the foam ball, I just dabbed some glue on the back and firmly placed it on the ball.  Then, I just started adding more around it until it was completely covered.

My one tip…make sure you have LOTS of glue sticks on hand.

It’s a super easy project and kind of relaxing.

You can paint the ball before you start gluing the gems on, but I liked the light pastel look and thought a color underneath would be too dark.

All finished. I feel like this goes with my coastal style for the house, but I think this craft belongs in the garden.  They have LOTS of colors for the gems to choose from, too!
