After Love Sweet Love linked up these beautiful decorative balls, I knew I had to make me some.
I found this glass canister at Ross for $7.99.
I bought some Styrofoam balls, gathered the different types of beans, my trusty hot glue gun and got to work.
It took me about 2 hours to finish all 3 of them. I wasn't keeping track of time because I knew it would be a looong process.
I finished my decorative "bean balls" and I was so happy with the results!
I didn't account for the size of the beans after they were glued on the balls! The balls alone fit perfectly, but then when you add the bean they are too big. DANG IT!!!
So now my options are:
- Make new bean balls, just smaller (so it should take less time)
- Display the giant bean balls in some type of bowl and return the vase.
- Display the balls in a bowl, keep the vase and think of something else to do with it.
- Find a bigger vase (which means more $$)
