I found this a while back at a Homegoods store and just had to bring it home.
I thought it would make a great centerpiece for my dining room table. Which, in itself, is a whole ‘nother project. Problem was, I couldn’t figure out what to put in it!
I came across this idea, of making rag balls using old shirts, in a copy of Flea Market Style magazine-which I just love!
Instead of purchasing shirts, I bought fabric scraps from a local thrift store. These ranged in price from .10 cents to .50 cents per bundle. I think I bought five or six bundles of different cream and white textures.
I also picked up a few bags of styrofoam balls from our Dollar Tree. I wrapped the fabric around these to help with the shape.
And here’s what I came up with.
And of course, a burlap one. Gotta love the burlap.
So now I just have to figure out what to throw in there with them. I was thinking maybe some old baseballs would make a good texture combination. Any ideas?
