Bowling balls for yard art.

These are not done yet but wanted to share them with you anyway. I got the bowling balls from a thrift store for $3.99 each. The pattern and directions I googled and found directions in the online magazine Birds and Blooms. I found if I put the balls on full soda/beer cans it would hold the balls and only leave a small ring to paint later.

For the black first I tried tape and masked it off. I fouund this didn't work for me so I just hand painted the black over the red.
I found this copper tube in the back yard where my DH had left it after he replaced it on the a/c, it was his idea to bend the end before we put it into the finger holes.

I only had white caulking but it is paintable, I just have to wait for it to dry before I can paint it. I think it will be at least a week and then they will be sent to the backyard to live. I have 2 more balls and I think I will make the bees out of them.

Yup still a bad bloger

I should just know better than to think I could get crafting done in the summer. I do have a date set with a friend to do some crafting so just maybe I will get some done. We have almost finished our kitchen island and I am sooooooooo happy to have it almost over. I hate waiting around for people to show up they say 10 am then show up at 4pm. I have one more day to wait around and I hope it will be all done.
