Summer Decor Balls

Happy Thursday!  Has anyone seen this awesome closeline at the Dollar Store?  It was tucked away with the weird car/garage stuff at my store, but I sniffed it out. 




Ok, maybe sniff is not the right word...  It reminded me so much of that lovely bakers twine from Divine Twine.  So I bought up a bunch of it in all of these delicious colors and set to work hot gluing said clotheline to styrofoam balls. 




I love the end result - they're oh so fresh and summery.  The blue ones in particular feel very naughty nautical.


And if anyone is wondering (I'm sure all of you are on pins and needled...ha!) I'm totally procrastinating on my Mother's Day gifts.  I'm a bad, bad little monkey!

I'm also thinking of what to put on my glass fixtures at home. I'm used to Christmas ball (restoring it, if it isn't Christmas), marbles and coins, but now a new idea came in. Let me surprise my kids with this one.
