I painted it with copper spray paint, then glued copper leaves to it.

Very pretty! I love the copper look. I have a BB I am trying to decide what to do with. My first thought was gluing marbles to it. But now you have me thinking spray paint too. It would be a first for me also. I do a LOT of planning & little following thru~
Great job.

I like to glue stuff to them and then spray with the red primer- looks like terracotta. Bowling balls are so much fun to make- Ive gotten my sister and several friends hooked !

lilycrazy - I ike your idea of spraying them with red primer. I have five waiting for me to get in a creative mood. Can't decide what I want to do to them.

Very pretty! I like the copper. You did a very good job. I want to do a ladybug but BB's are very hard to find around my area. Marylee

Great Leave Ball.
What is your 2cd going to be.
Are you Hooked now?

Marylee,
You can usually get them at Goodwill.
Or Salvation Army.
