I’m sure many of you are ready for Spring, especially those of you in the North East. Here in Arizona, it is the perfect weather at this time of year but I do wish there was more of a season change. I really miss coming out of winter and feeling the hint of Spring.
A couple of weeks ago, I found this lovely bowl at Goodwill. I immediately grabbed it off the shelf because I loved the lines of it so much.
The bowl is cast iron and so heavy! Since I bought it, I have been trying to find a place for it. Now it has a home and is decorated for Spring.
Last night I took a quick trip to the craft store and picked out some papier mache and styrofoam balls. Then I picked up a bag of moss and found this awesome mossy chicken wire “ribbon”. I love this ribbon.
Starting with the papier mache balls, I painted them with Americana acrylic paint in Buttermilk and let them dry.
Then I wrapped the “ribbon” around the ball and wired the ends together.
The sides didn’t quite meet so I worked the wire into an interesting shape.
Once those were done, I painted glue all over the styrofoam balls and attached the moss. I worked the moss around and pressed it into the ball.
This was a fun quick project that brought some Spring life into the house! Plus it was fun making a mess even though the clean up stinks. The moss went all over the place.
Check out this post to see how I made the rabbit sitting next to it. Another messy project but a lot of fun to make too!
