Well tonight we went bowling and low and behold i busted my bowling ball. It's too cool to just toss, especially how cool it looks under a black light. What might I be able to do with it and how would i go about doing it?

Heres the ball and the "gash"

Heres the peice

Heres it under the black light (much cooler in person, whoever said cameras capture everything?)

So Any ideas?

If you have a way to put a blacklight in the room where you are going to put the ball, then you could make a candleholder out of it with those blacklight-reactive candles that drip in cool ways. If you stick one candle in each of the holes, they'll stick out at odd angles. Position the ball on some kind of base (clay or.. whatever you have or can do) so that the candles are all at roughly the same angle from the ground. If it works out the way it looks in my head, you'll have nifty blacklight dripping down the sides of your bowling ball from three weird-looking candles.

Well... it would be up to your parents, but they make lovely flower garden art...buried back inbetween some posies or the edge of a bush, the splash of unexpected color & texture is appealing the the eye Wink  Here is a link, if you wanted to add mosaics to it... http://www.diynet.com/diy/cr_garden_patio/article/0,2025,DIY_13757_2273950,00.html

I have seen them used as legs for coffee tables and couches, but since you only have one... how about an end table?

If you had someone to cut it in half.. it would open a whole new world of ideas for you, as well Cheesy

I am sure you could do this for a decoration in your room...since the colors are so awesome on your ball! http://paintideas.com/project.asp?ProjId=4051&TS=CA&bhfv=5

Try googling "bowling ball art".  Out of 739,000 results, I bet there are some cool ideas there.

lol awesome, it doesnt have a stand tho but if i were to do that im sure i could cut through it in the middle to make it halved and sand it down.

Thanks for all the awesome ideas !!!!
