Crafty Decorating

Today’s post isn’t so much a craft as it is a decorating item. Decorating is a craft right?
I purchased these plastic balls for $.50 at a flea market this weekend. They were a little dirty and all tied together, but I saw some potential.

I brought them home for a good bath and Matt clipped all the wires for me. The next mission I have to find what container to keep them in.

I started with this mason jar because I thought the colors would look nice against the design but really it just made it harder to see both.

Next came the vase from our wedding. I thought the swirl of the vase would cause the colors to blend together and look nice but in the end it wasn’t what I was looking for.

After that I transferred everything to this glass bowl but the bowl wasn’t full and looked weird.

Lastly, I tried a hurricane vase (also from the wedding) it’s been sitting on my desk holding scraps of paper but I think its new purpose will be decorative.

What do you think? Which one looks best?

Thanks for stopping by. I agree I like the last one best so I think I'll stick with it.

Glad you like OnOurWay - I'll be bringing lots of ideas like this in the future.
