Christmas balls and Halloween decorations, light garlands and Easter sculptures are all excellent DIY ideas for eco-friendly seasonal decorations. Ping pong balls resemble snowballs, making them ideal for natural Christmas decorations and table centerpieces with winter flowers and evergreen branches. They're also great for Halloween decor because they look so spooky stacked in a jar or scattered on a table.
Ping pong balls are sold in pairs at craft stores. They are about 1 inch in diameter and have two flat sides and a wrinkled surface. When used as decoration, first wash the ping pong balls in hot water to remove any coating or colorant then dry them in a dust free area before using them for projects such as making Christmas trees and Halloween props.
You can use different colors of ping pong balls for creating holiday themes. For example red and white ping pong balls make a classic Christmas tree, while black and yellow ones look like Halloween pumpkin.
Once you've run out of ideas for how to use ping pong balls, buy more! They're cheap and easy to find and come in many colors and styles. From candy to clothes, ping pong balls are useful and attractive items that add fun and excitement to any project.
Golf balls may be used in creative projects. Golf balls are ideal for creative projects due to their consistent shape and size. Form snowman-shaped Christmas tree decorations out of them, or glue them together to make caterpillars, ants, and other creatures.
Here are some more ideas for what you can do with golf balls:
Make a ball pit for your patio or balcony. Put a few inches of soil in a shallow dish and then add water. Let children play in the pool while you eat outside on the patio.
Hang a tennis ball from the end of a string and swing it through the air. Catch it when it comes down.
Use a fork as a walking stick. When you get tired, just walk up to a tree and use its trunk like a cane.
Build a wall. Use the solid core of a golf ball as your building material. This is fun for both young and old.
Play catch with no rules. Tag things out of order as you throw them back and forth. For example, if it's your turn, you could hit two balls off one tee and then go first with only one ball. The person who gets their ball into the cup wins.
Take swings at balloons. Try not to hurt yourself when playing this game.
