Glowing Ratan Balls

10:34 PM

Welcome to another 
Spring Addition 
to my home decor and yet another 
dollar store find!

I needed something for my mantel which was still looking
way too wintery 
and I came across these lovely Rattan Balls. 
This was the outcome after I placed them in some
extra flower vases I had.

This is what resulted...
I also decided to use my white 
"fairy lights" 
into the vases as well to make them glow!
I am demanding that 
twinkly lights
be used in more holiday's 
than just Christmas! ha
{I had a hard time getting the right shot with them filled with lights but this was the best of the not so greats}

     Here is all you need
  • Rattan Balls
  • Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Vases
  • {lights}

{glow with some Seinfeld, as you do}

My weekend project... 
What did you all get up to this weekend?
