I'm joining the Nifty Thrifty party at Coastal Charm...check it out to see the amazing things people find thrifting and the spectular things they do with them.
Remember this post where I shared the treasures I found at Goodwill? I'm going to reveal what I did with them.The picture above is from the Ballard Designs catalog and was my inspiration. It came with a $45-$60 price tag depending on the size. I love the boxwood look, but from the posts I've seen where people recreate this I know that the tedious process is not for me. Besides I love moss, it's all over my yard.
We live on a solid piece of granite, the stones below are from our property when they blasted the granite to build the house. They are all over the yard. I love rocks too! Because we are on granite the drainage in our yard is terrible, so there is a lot of moisture, hence the moss...EVERYWHERE. I could probably do a whole year of science with the kids studying the various types of moss we have.
Okay, onto the project. I started with three varying sizes of Christmas balls I got 50% off after Christmas - total $5.75. Looks like I'm setting up a solar system.
I spray painted them black, so the bold colors would not show threw if I was not meticulous in covering them.
Now for the moss - $4.99 a bag at Hobby Lobby.
The finished product - I LOVE THESE!!!
Who knew moss balls could be so photogenic?
The urns were about $ 7 for all three at Goodwill
Total project cost $18 not including spray paint and spray adhesive.
