Bowling ball gazing ball A bowling ball, E6000 craft adhesive and a bag of flat marbles is all you need to create beautiful garden art and home decor.

Gazing balls can add a touch of unexpected flair to any garden nook. You can often find bowling balls in the $2 – $3 range at thrift stores, or ask your local bowling alley about damaged bowling balls (for free!).

    Hi, I saw the gazing bowling balls at Camp Florida where my folks go for the winter. I want to make some with my grandkids. What kind of glue do you use? Thank you.

    Thanks! I was curious how much a bowling bowl cost and where to find them!

    Michele I scour Goodwill and yard sales for balls…I picked up 3 today that were originally $20 and $13 at the Salvation Army at 50% off, so I paid $26 for all 3. Good deal. You can check Craigslist too.
