Do you Pinterest? I am completely obsessed. I think it is the best way to keep inspiration inspiration, you know what I mean? A while ago I found these great thumbtack decor balls on a site, Landee See Landee Do, and I fell in love. Now guess what... Kelli see Kelli do.
She said that she used 100-150 thumbtacks per ball. Well, she must have gotten a lot smaller balls than I did. Mine took 300+ so this thrifty project turned out to be not so thrifty.
To do it you start with the foam balls you can get at a craft store (unless you can think of something else -- tennis balls don't work, maybe try plastic Christmas ornaments or duct tape). Then you push a tack in and keep going until the entire ball is covered.
To finish, I Mod Podged then entire ball.
I bought green spray paint to finish it but for now I'm leaving it silver. It's peacefully resting on a candle holder on the wall in the craft nook, which I will fully reveal on Friday.
Linking up at the great Linky parties found at the bottom of the blog. They are where I find most of my inspiration! Check them out!
