Day 3... Let's get Ballsy

LOL!!! I hope the title got your attention!  OK OK so you know those decorative balls you can buy, the ones that cost like umpteen thousand dollars!!  Well I made my own, with some $ store styrofoam balls and some ribbon that I had in my ribbon jar!  I am by no means saying that I don't spend the pretty penny for the decorative things, I just like to see how much I can save by making my own(and now that I know how to make them and how much I can save, you can bet your pretty penny I will be making more!!!). I took my ribbon and stamped images from Inkadinkado on 2 of the colors.  I then cut the ribbon into lengths that would fit around the ball meeting in the middle.  Then using straight pins, I pinned the ribbons on alternating colors.  That is what I love the most about them, I can change them with the seasons to coordinate with the color of candles I am using, or whatever else I get a fancy for! 

What do you think of my balls!!!
