Patriotic Ornament

I was at Dollar Tree several weeks ago when I ran across these  blue bouncy balls.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, but I loved the color, and with the 4th of July coming up I knew I'd use them for something.

Patriotic Ornament from Blissful Roots

I had some red glittered vinyl on hand, so I decided to use the vinyl for stars.  I used my Cricut to cut out different sizes of stars, and then adhered them to the ball.  So easy!  The hardest part was getting the stars arranged on the ball so the different sizes were evenly spaced and distributed.

These patriotic ornaments would look darling hanging from a porch, trees, mantle, anywhere your festivities are taking place.  I used white embroidery floss to hang my ball.  I did try to hot glue the floss to the ball, but it didn't hold (probably because it's been so hot!).  I decided to use super glue, and that worked.  I glued the embroidery floss in the hole where you blow the ball up.

So there, you have it.  A simple, inexpensive way to add a touch of red and blue to your 4th of July gathering.  
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.
