Dear Sweet Blog

Dear Sweet Blog,
I am so, so sorry that I have ignored you this week. I have let dental appointments, design consultations, wedding consultations, family needs and broken bones come before you. Please forgive me. Maybe this little tutorial will help you feel better and make up for my neglect.
Sincerely,
Joy

How to Make Your Own Halloween OrbsYou'll need:
Wooden Balls
(Ping Pong balls might even work)
Black Spray Paint
White Paint MarkerSpray paint the orbs (balls) black.Helpful hint: Place balls on cloth surface so they won't roll.
When dry, print on scary words using paint marker.Place Halloween Orbs in a pretty bowl, vase,
or apothecary jar and ENJOY!

I am filing this away in my brain to pick up some wooden balls and maybe turquoise paint and do the Fruits of the Spirit on them for decorations when there are no holidays to be seen...!

What a simple and inexpensive idea to help decorate for halloween! So often halloween decor can look cheap, but this is brilliant and looks classy!

Ashlee and Nathanael said...

This is a super cute idea. But a fair warning, paint doesn't like to stick to ping pong balls. I used gold paint on one once to make a flying snitch for a Harry Potter things and it took forever. The wooden balls are the best idea.
Thanks for the idea!

Poor Joy, it sounds like you have had a week of it! I hope you are ok, and have had time to relax.

Those halloween balls are so cute!!

Kim said...

What a fabulous idea...the wheels in my head are spinning about how many cute things that you could do as a take off from this...monogramed balls...stenciled...another project for my list!

mx2mommy said...

LOVE the orbs! FAB idea Joy! Thanks for sharing!

Kim said...

@cheapchichome. This is one of those ideas: Why didn't I think of that? Cute!

Anne said...

These are so adorable! I love them!!!

Christie said...

Can I ask where you got the wooden balls? I went to Joanne's and a million dollar stores, but they didn't have them. I ended up getting wooden balls with holes, but they were still $4.00 and only 1". Thanks for your help!

the thrifty ba said...

i wanted to let you know i did a post on these balls and i linked back to you. http://thethriftyba.blogspot.com/2010/09/halloween-balls.html
thanks for the great idea!

ANKH said...

I followed a link from "The Thrifty Ba." These are so cool.

Too bad they weren't made with ping pong balls...they would have qualified for the Recycled Halloween Craft Challenge I'm hosting!
