Little treasures tutorial!!



Had some fun and made some rag balls. So sweet in their little vintage box. One with a plate , one without. Hope you like 'em. 3 inch Styrofoam balls, insert wire loop with glue, wrap with chosen fabric strips. mix elmer's and water half and half ,coat ball with mixture allow to dry, making tag while you are waiting. distress and stamp tag. Took about an hour to do 4. Try it , they are sweet.

Betty these are so lovely. I happen to have a small little styrofoam ball here that I was supposed to mosiac, but ran out of the glass before I got to this one. I think I will make one just to see. Just like Dawn I can think of a million uses for them and no sew is my kind of fabric project.

These are just beautiful - and the display really highlights them. I love the one with the plate. I collect plates. Unfortunately, I don't have an hour to devote to that today. But maybe one day.....

These are great, and you could probably use egg shaped styrofoam for Easter :) I may just try it!
