Simple DIY Spring Decor

I made these cute moss covered buckets for less then $7.00! I think they are going to look great on my Spring mantel!
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $7.00 Difficulty: Easy
These were super easy and quick to make!
Supplies needed:
Mod Podge
Sheet Moss
Buckets
Balloons
Blow up your balloons and fit them to your buckets. Seal the ends with a bit of Mod Podge to help with air loss.
Apply Mod Podge to the balloons until they are completely covered. You may need to go back and add more to thinner areas.

    Curious.... why not use styrofoam balls instead of the balloons? Was this just what you had on hand or is it better for some reason. love the idea! =)

      @Jana Phifer Thanks Jana! The balloons were significantly cheaper then the Styrofoam balls. They may deflate, if they do I will swap them out for the balls. It is kind of an experiment to also see if the Glue will help them from deflating. :) We shall see!

    The balloons are going to deflate over time. You'd be better off buying a bouncy ball or even a bowl and turn it upside down.

    Very cute idea! You could always use several layers of Mod Podge and strips of torn newspaper to coat the balloons to help maintain the shape( should they deflate)-
