I saw this cutesy idea a week or so ago on Pinterest – the styrofoam balls and the thumbtacks, sitting in a cute little bowl. I thought to myself “ahhhh what a cute easy idea”!! I have a bowl, wooden at my house that has the wooden ones in it – love that look!
I thought this was a great idea – plus you could spray paint this any color you want – styrofoam balls … so many crafty things you could do!!
So when I started out I was like ahhhh this is very time consuming..hmmm I’m not sure I want to do a bunch of these….it’s easier to buy them. But half way through, I was thinking this isn’t too bad really – I could get obsessed. I suppose it isn’t any worse than sewing, needle-point, or something like that.
These could actually be fun – I’m not sure I would spray paint them…but you could – it wouldn’t be hard. You could also buy different color tacks just as easy. You could make patterns – so many possibilities.
Over all, not a bad project – not sure if I’ll make any more. I happened to have some styrofoam balls – so I’m not sure the cost. I bought the tacks from a Dollar General store, $1 a pack – I used about 3 1/2 packs. This is something you could do to relieve stress 🙂 I actually liked using all white.
