DIY Halloween Decorative Balls

Happy Friday everyone.  Wow, and another week has slipped by.  I have been told that the older we get, the faster things go -- this year has been warp speed and I think it is only picking up the pace.  I did manage to get a couple of projects done, and hopefully, I will be decorated by the time Halloween is here.







These are my Halloween DIY Deco Balls



This is what I start with.  I fell in love with this cute spider web bowl from The Dollar store.  I just glued it onto a Dollar Store candle stick and it instantly became an elegant bowl for decorative balls.


I think it is so cool.



These are my Halloween themed decorative balls.



These are the supplies I needed.




I had extra bugs from a sensory project I did with the kids.  Now on to the individual deco balls.




Fly Ball (this is in honor of my softball player - a fly ball to catch -- haha)




This one is just rolled rosettes (my favorite flower).





I cut little squares of tissue paper and mod podged them on.  I really liked the shinny finish.




This one, I just twisted the strips of fabric onto the ball and secured it with hot glue.  The fun green one is just mod podged.



This one is my favorite and I am making a few more.



I started by soaking strips of Dollar Store gauze in my coffee.  I took the strips outside and let them dry completely.




It just gave it an older appearance.  Then, I just wrapped the ball to look a little messy.



Added some google eyes, and




popped him on top of my bowl.




By far, he is my favorite.  Hope you are are having a spooktacular time this Halloween season.

Happy Haunting.
