Super Easy, Super Ball Art DIY

Super Easy, Super Ball Art DIYI absolutely love this super ball art DIY for two reasons. First, if you can hammer a nail and place an order on amazon, then you can create this very playful art piece for your home, it’s truly that easy. Second, I love taking something ordinary and using it in mass in a way that creates something unexpected. When you first see this, it just looks like a graphic art piece, but upon further inspection, you realize it’s ordinary rubber super balls. I love the challenge of making something extraordinary out of the ordinary, plus it’s just silly, which I also love.Super Easy, Super Ball Art DIY 2So, here’s the how to for making this super ball art DIY:

  1. Measure the width of your space to determine how many of these CB2 Beaker Vases you’ll need.
