Garden Art from bowling balls

I love an opportunity to make something ‘throw away’ into something that can be not only usable but interesting and attractive.  (I found these at garage sales for $3.00 – $5.00)

The rich color of this red bowling ball adds color and interest in the garden, quietly tucked into the corner.

If you want to make a bowling ball more interesting, here is another idea.

This is a bowling ball mosaic done with tiles that I made (with the help of a very talented friend)  We used them for an great tile project in our entry and had lots left over and used some here.  They were glued on, allowed to dry, and grouted.  I never got around to sealing it.  It has been through one very wet, cold, snowy winter so far and is in perfect condition.

I saw some black bowling balls painted like ladybugs.  I might try that with one of the 3 bowling balls in the garage.

More to come……
