BOOK PAGE COVERED WIFFLE BALLS
Usually I’m the guy who plays with the bowls of decorative balls sitting on top of the coffee table. I can’t help it. I love to hear people tell me to “stop touching their balls!” It makes me laugh. Anyway, I thought these were quite beautiful in their simplicity and if you know anything about me at all, I love wiffle balls and book pages so this was a marriage made in heaven. Now get some balls and make these fantastic table top accessories! I mean, get some wiffle balls and make these fantastic table top accessories.

Wiffle balls (99c store)
1. Cut your book pages in strips that are about 3/8” wide and about 4” long. You can make longer if you want, but I find the shorter strips are easier to work with.
2. Water down the Elmer’s glue just a tiny bit so it’s easier to spread and paint it on the wiffle ball and add a strip of book page to it.
3. Continue this process until the entire ball is covered and then cover it some more.
4. When the ball is dry, coat it in the Minwax Polycrylic Clear Coat for a nice finish.
