I took this picture right there on the floor with my i phone.
And my brain got to thinking, yeah I can make them.
So I am sure because great minds think alike that someone else out there in bloggie land
has also made these in one form or another. So Kudos to all the great minds who have made these balls too.
I was going to make them with the styrofoam balls they sell at Michaels, but they were a bit pricey so I used some $1.00 nerf balls from the dollar store and also some baseballs I had laying around,
and twine, as below.
And of course some hot glue.
You just start at one end and glue and twirl. I've used twine and regular rope, and sisal rope.
The first 2 are twine.
The one below is with sisal rope.
I love the natural color. I use them on my coffee table with my latest vintage pitcher finds
I wrapped some in real fisherman's netting and hung on the towel ladder for a nautical look at the entrance to the bathroom.
And here they are again in a grouping with a couple of other items. A store bought monkey ball and a wicker ball. ( haven't figured out how to make the wicker ones yet... the monkey balls I make are much smaller )
The results are a lot of fun. And I actually love making them!
