Pin Ball Magic

I did these for Country Living Magazine about 12 years ago and people still call me around the Holidays for them….so simple…spray paint gold or silver styrofoam balls (the hard ones)….take a pearlized pin ,pierce a big a faux glass bead and then a sequin and pierce it through ball…..go around the whole ball when complete put in a pretty bowl or a bird cage (because they are tooo heavy for the tree) and make merry!!!Img_1130
