I love them! I'm sure my grandpa has a couple of old bowling balls laying around.  I'll have to hit him up for one!  I'm so glad you decided to join...keep on crafting!

I agree with funkyskunk (I love your name!).  It's the first thing that came into my head when I saw #3.  If that doesn't work though, definately love #1.

Of course you can! Have fun and good luck!

I've decided to try and sell some at a craft show.  Let me know what you think.  I'm still not sure on prices so if you have any opinions let me know.

When I painted some terra cotta pots for plants a lil while back I used the acrylic I had available.  And the plants taht were transferred into them aren't doing so well, but were fine before the transfer.  Do you think this is attributed to the paint??  Are your plants doing alright? Curious as to if the paint could be soaked in by the soil some how?  I may be really thinking too deeply about it, but I've got a pretty good green thumb, so I guess I'm looking for a reason why they aren't doing very well. 

Not sure what to tell you on this one.  I've used regular acrylics before and the only problem I had was that is wasn't waterproof and washed off in the rain.  Only thing I can suggest is taking the plants out and see how they do.  All my plants are doing really well, I'll have to take some pics and post them soon.

The paint I use is called patio paint by decoart.  It's made for concrete, terra cotta and wood adn is weatherproof.  I love it! and it comes in lots of cool colors!

THanks for all the feedback guys!  The pink and green pot (I think that's the one you mean) says you can bury a lot of troubles by digging in the dirt.  Thanks again

thanks for the feedback.  they're really simple.  i start by picking the beads i want and gluing them on in a whatever pattern i want.  then i start the wire at the bottom and thread it thru all the beads and then wrap it back down to the bottom and glue it there.  you should try it 'cause it's easy and doesn't take a lot of time but it's fun.

I"m thinking this goes here but I'm not sure, here it is anyway...

My boyfriend has had this ottoman for years.  The top was done in a thick tweed material and it was ripped to shreds.  I was tired of having the crappy thing in my living room with the stuffing all sticking through.  I've never done this sort of thing before so on a whim I went and got a yard and a half of this cool fabric that's a light tweed with pinks and oranges and blues in it.  I just tore the old stuff off and tacked the new on.  I think it turned out pretty good, a little lopsided maybe but I like it.  My bf hates the new colors  Smiley.

I painted these over the weekend to start some seeds in.  I'm really happy with how they turned out.

I use a paint by DecoArt called Patio Paint.  It's for concrete, terra cotta, and wood and it is waterproof.  I get it a Michael's but I'm sure you can get it anywhere.
