First, I made some of those adorable sponge balls. I've seen some different variations on some of my favorite blogs, but here is how I made mine.
I bought some regular sponges for $2.69 at Target.
Then I picked up some cable ties at Ace Hardware for $2.50.
I used scissors to cut the sponges into strips, cutting the length of the sponge.
The finished project.
I ended up with 2 balls from a package of 6 sponges.
I just think they are so adorable! Hudson couldn't wait until we went swimming to use them...he had to play with them in the bathtub last night.
It was a very cheap project and a fun pool toy for Hudson. Win, win!!
For my next project all I had to do was go out to the backyard to get my supplies.
I picked out some rocks from our landscaping and brought them in to wash.
Then I used a Sharpie, which I already had on hand, to write messages.
I love them! Now I need to pick up a dish to display them.
You can't beat a free project!
I only made 4 for now because I plan on it being an ongoing project.
As for the tissue balls that I was going to make, I decided on a different mobile to hang above her changing table. I found my inpiration on Pinterest for the new mobile too, so now I just need to pick up my supplies. I plan on working on that this weekend.
