I 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.So, here’s the how to for making this super ball art DIY:
- Measure the width of your space to determine how many of these CB2 Beaker Vases you’ll need.
- Using a straight edge, hammer in a small nail for each vase.
- Hang the vases.
- Fill with super balls. (We purchased our super balls on Amazon.com. We recommend getting a variety pack, or maybe starting your own super ball collection, I’m sure you have a few floating around your house. Just be sure they’re small enough to fit. The vases are 1.5” diameter, so we bought 1.25” dia. super balls.)
- Voila! You have a playful art piece for your home, that’s sure to be quite the conversation starter.
