balls balls and more balls (and some moss ribbon)

i love balls. you all know that. see here, here (purple ones in the jar)
and here. i am always trying to think of new ways to decorate with them.
yes, weird obsession, i know.
this is one that totally bit. i mean, i hate it. which is sad because i love balls and burlap!dont worry, i ripped it all apart and saved the ball. (the 'now and later' ball is the before. i got them a target after christmas for 25 cents. i let the kids have the candy and i got the ball! worked out well for everyone!)
this started life as a paper mache ball. i wanted it to have color and i had no money and no desire to go to hobby lobby for supplies. i modged podged some apple green tissue paper to it. i like the pop of color it gives.and finally this. it was $4.99 at joanns and they were just putting it out on the floor! yes, it says 'moss roll' on it! the cashier picked it up, slowly turned it around in her hand and said 'the possibilites are endless'. EXACTLY how i felt!
i hot glued it to this pot i had hanging around and sprayed painted one of my twine balls yellow. the little metal tag is from michaels clearence...50 cents for a pack of six! im still working on where to put the rest.


then i decided that i needed to switch out the twine ball for a bacci ball that was out as a st pat's day (it was green, not a real st pats day decoration). but moved the twine to the aqua pot in the other box. (this is my main floor half bath. the only one that needs to be clean and good looking for company!)
so there you go-some balls that worked. one (of many) that didnt.
but im still loveing them!

SO CUTE! OH MY GOODNESS, MOSS ROLL... I think I've died and gone to heaven. I MUST go to Joann's and see if mine has it. Is it real or fake, not that I care, but I'm curious! WoW what an idea!
