Hi all.  I can't believe it's been two years since I last logged in here! Shocked  I've finally started to feel crafty again after a loooong creative drought.
Before we were married, my husband would decorate with these worn looking glass balls he scavenged from his old office when the company closed.  Guys just don't seem to get the need for nice, shiny decorations..... Tongue  Anyway, this year I decided to "recycle" them with an idea I borrowed from an episode of Martha Stewart Living (although she'd probably not call my project "a good thing" Grin ).  I took a foam cone shaped base from the floral aisle of my local craft place, and glued the balls on in a random pattern.  I filled in the empty spots in between the balls with a ratty old garland cut into bits and stuck an old bow on top.  I broke a few of the balls while working on this.  Then my husband told me to stop busting his balls.

Check me out at Etsy!
