2 things about me:
#1-I’m cheap. I like to spend money….oh yes….but I don’t like to spend more than I think something is worth and very rarely do I think things are worth enough to pay full price for. There are exceptions. My computer for example….spared no expens
e because I needed something dependable for work and like Macs. However, for the most part, I’m pretty cheap.
#2-I don’t want to be like everyone else…….not that I want to be different on purpose but I don’t want to be generic. I think that’s why I don’t really like Walmart. It’s just everywhere and I’m bombarded by it. If I’m going to have something in my home or use something, I want it to have a story and some character. Again, this doesn’t apply to everything but this is true for the majority.
All that to say, I had not jumped on the “decorative balls” (okay, I can’t help but giggle) band-wagon because of the expense and the because I haven’t really found any I liked until now.
I saw one at Joanns about a month ago and it’s regular price was $7.99. Although it’s super cute, I’m cheap and that’s too much for decorative ball (giggle, giggle). Luckily, when I was there Friday, they were marked down 50%. $4 is still too much for my taste but I bit the bullet and bought 2 (though I may be taking one back).
I didn’t have quite the same punch the tutorial used but I think I made it work.
Here are my supplies (and my ugly craft table):
Supplies: styrofoam ball, paper, flower punch, straight pins
It was easy-peasy to put cover the ball by overlapping the flowers. My sister, Caitlan (who, by the way, HATES crafting!!!) was so annoyed with me because she thought this would take forever. It didn’t.
