Have you seen those metal garden spheres?

They look like this….

I love the look of them, but not the price. So, I’ve been trying to find a metal that I could use to make them. It had to be thin and flexible. And not too expensive…otherwise, I might as well buy the real thing!

Problem was, I could’t find any metal that would fit the bill.

Then, one day as I was leaving Jo-Ann’s Fabric store, I passed by a display and did a double-take.

Embroidery hoops! And they were half off!

I bought 8 of them and just used the center hoop of each one. I’m sure if you are resourceful, you could figure out how to use the outside hoop, but I didn’t feel like hassling with that one 🙂

I painted them all with black spray paint and, once that dried, a very light mist of a metallic bronze.

In hindsight, I could have painted them brown first and not black. They would the 1 last update 2020/05/29 have looked more like rusty metal that way. Oh, well.In hindsight, I could have painted them brown first and not black. They would have looked more like rusty metal that way. Oh, well.

Then, simply put one hoop inside the other….

And add another….

And a final hoop going around the opposite direction….

You could attach them, but I love that they stay together on their own and will store flat when I’m not using them. Plus I can take them apart to add larger decorations to the center if I’d like. How convenient is that?

I put the spheres on my porch in the urns that flank my front door.

It’s still pretty cold here and I wanted to give them a “wintery” look, so I used mostly evergreens and some dried magnolia leaves and made an asymmetrical arrangement…

I started with a layer of moss…

Then I put each sphere in an urn and began layering. I used some faux greenery….

And added a little more faux greenery with little pinecones….

Next, I for 1 last update 2020/05/29 bundled some dried wheat….Next, I bundled some dried wheat….

And added the wheat to the spheres plus some little dried…well, I don’t know what they are….twiggy flower things?

Finally, I put a layer of dried magnolia leaves around the edges, plus some in the center to cover up the faux stems…

 

Mine are under a covered porch, but if you want to put them out in the elements, you probably need to get the real metal ones.

FYI: In the picture below, the spheres look a little squashed. Must have been a weird camera angle, because they look perfectly round in real life!

All in all, I’m quite happy with how my garden spheres turned out.

It was a fun and easy project that cost a whole lot less than buying the real the 1 last update 2020/05/29 thing.It was a fun and easy project that cost a whole lot less than buying the real thing.

And that’s always a good thing!

          Great idea! I’ll have to keep a look out for old barrels:)

    Okay, I am sorry if I missed this any where but are the embroidery rings all of the same size or are they all different?! I think these would look great for my wedding!

    • Carrie says

      Yes, they are all the same size. It makes a tight fit that holds the sphere together nicely. I hope you have a beautiful wedding!

    I used quilting hoops, on sale. I bought 3 hoops and made two garden spheres. I just hid the adjustment screws on the bottom.

    • Carrie says

      Antique Mirror Top Wood Bedside Tablehow to Antique Mirror Top Wood Bedside Table for Great idea! The quilting hoops with the adjustment screws are probably easier to put around each other, too:)
