DIY Decorative Balls

Why pay more than you have to for cute décor when you can make it yourself for half the price?  I will show you how to make two different kinds of decorative balls on a budget!

Supplies you will need:

*Floramat Moss Mat (I got mine at Wal-Mart)

*2 Foam Balls (Dollar Tree)

*1-2 Packs Faux Cotton Pod Accents-depending on size of foam balls (Hobby Lobby)

*Jute Twine

*Scissors

*Glue Gun (Affiliate Link for my cordless glue gun I use-https://amzn.to/2QzOIlV)

For the cotton pod ball all you have to do is simply start hot gluing the pods to your ball.  Don’t be afraid to use a lot of glue!  I like to use the 2 Inch size for these ones as they turn out quite a bit bigger than you would expect.

Once I get all of my pods glued on and the glue has dried you can go back through and pull the cotton a little bit to fill your gaps. Easy enough, right?

Next for the moss balls I like to use 3 Inch foam balls. The sheet of floramat is plenty big so I like to cut my sheet into fourths.  If you were using smaller sized balls you could easily cut your floramat into sixths and still have plenty.

Once you have your desired size of moss cut you will then peel the backing off of the back and begin to wrap around your ball.  The moss is farely stretchy so don’t be afraid to pull on it to form it around the ball.

I like to cut off any excess moss to avoid having lumps.  Secure any areas that may be sticking out with hot glue.

You can either leave them just like this or you can add twine to dress it up a bit.  If you decide to add twine you will just simply add a dab of hot glue to secure the beginning and continue to wrap the twine around your ball.

When you have your desired amount of twine you will just secure the end down with hot glue and your done!  Now your ready to decorate with your new décor!

SPRING BARN WOOD SIGN

Do you have some extra barn wood laying around that your not sure what to do with? Here is a quick and easy idea to not only use up some of your old barn wood but to make some cute home décor as well!

Supplies you will need:
*Piece of barn wood or scrap wood

*S-P-R-I-N-G letters(I used the 4 in. letters from the Wal-mart craft section)

*Mint Berry cardstock from Hobby Lobby. This comes with 80 4.5in x 6.5in. sheets. You could also use single sheets of cardstock or scrapbook paper.

*Mod Podge

*Paint brush

*Scissors

*Hot glue gun- Here is my affiliate link for my cordless glue gun I use…and LOVE!

The first thing you will want to do is trace each letter onto your desired piece of card stock or scrapbook paper and then cut them out.

Once you have all of you letters traced and cut out you will then use the Mod Podge to glue the paper on the letters. After I have my paper glued on I like to paint a light coat over the top of the paper also to help seal the letter. Keep in mind the Mod Podge does try clear!

You are now ready to hot glue your letters on your piece of wood. You can position your letters vertical or horizontal on your board. I decided I liked my letters horizontally for this project.



That’s all there is to it! Super cute and easy enough, right?

XOXO,
