Hi friends. I just had to share a couple more sonobe balls. I'm not really calling these ornaments, because they are just too big for the tree.
When I first started making these, I was curious as to how well it would work using brown paper bags, not the flimsy flat ones, but the heavy ones from the grocery store.
I made two different sizes, two with 4" squares and one with 6" squares. It is definitely easier to put together the larger sizes, but I did find out that because this paper isn't as smooth, that was actually an obstacle when putting the pieces together. I think it would have been close to impossible to use this paper on a smaller ball.
The gold one is painted with gold Lumiere paint. And for the one in the front in this next picture, I stamped each square with a burlap background stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms in coffee archival ink. After it was all put together, I coated it with matte Mod Podge. I love how that one turned out.
You can really see the detail of how the pieces are tucked into each other.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
