these are fabulous! They look so nice. I've heard of the bowling ball idea, but I would have never thought of using softballs. these are genius!

try your local second hand stores first - why pay full price if you can get it muuuuch cheaper.....

mm, a good point.  I will try there, but unfortunately our thrift stores are not that great here in Orlando... People are stingy with their old stuff for some reason!
I will def. check that out first though....
Or just mug one of the neighborhood kids playing ball in the street... heh heh heh......

being in Orlando I am sure that you have a freecycle...
go to www.freecycle.org...
there is two orlando groups that I quickly saw - one has over 8000 members!  Post up on there that you are looking for an old bowling ball and that the hole size is unimportant - and also for old softballs and whatnot - freecycle is great - you will become addicted to it - people will give away things that are just amazing... it doesn't hurt to try - not to mention if you get one that way it willl be freeeeee! - except for your gas to go pick it up...

Not a bad deal.  it is amazing what people give away on freecycle - I got 2 bags full of knitting and crochet patterns last spring.  I am still tickled over that find!

You can get them at your local bowling alley prob....I got some of mine from there..they will give you the ones that are a little beat up but since you are going to cover them, it won't matter...get some pins while you are there...and type in bowling pin crafts in Google for ideas... Grin

Here's my little baseball ladybug to go with my bigger one....It got showcased on about.com... Smiley tickled me to death Smiley scroll down to about the middle...these are some talented ladies...I prob got in by the skin of my teeth...or maybe they put anyone on who sends in thier submissions...that's prob it.. Grin Grin Grin I don't care..I like the company...

Wow!  Thanks for the great tips!


I joined the local freecycle (which, incidentally is a few blocks from my house... why did i never know that was there??) and will be making a trip to the bowling alley soon.
Thanks so much!

Okay, here's mine (work in progress).  I'm going to fill in the little gaps with some kind of blue stone chips & more rhinestones.  :-D
