Christmas Bowling Ball Ornaments An old bowling ball painted and decorated as a Christmas Ball Display Ornament

Approximate Time: 2 - 4 hours


  • paint
  • brushes
  • sand paper

  • bowl for holding bowling ball to paint it
  • glitter spray paint
  • plaster or joint compound to fill holes in the bowling ball
  • stickers or cutouts (your choice)
  • glue
  • clear acrylic sealer /mod podge
  • old newspaper to cover work area
  • small round object (your choice)
  • dollies
  • ribbons


Fill holes in bowling ball first. Let dry. Lightly use sandpaper over bowling ball. Wipe clean. Then paint with your choice of color using an old bowl to hold the ball as you paint. I used acrylic craft paint and painted them with brushes for a smooth surface. I painted the top half first, let it dry and painted the bottom half. Repeat until desired covering, the drying time of the paint will vary depending on how many layers of paint. I put together some cardboard circles and screwed a hanging hook in the center of the cardboard (to look like the top of an ornament) and glued it to the top of ball. I added stickers/cutouts and glued them to bowling ball. I then sprayed with glitter spray. I let it dry and sprayed them with acrylic sealer. I had little bowling ball stands to set the decorative balls on and I also used an old roll of duct tape to set the ball on.Christmas Bowling Ball Ornaments

One of my friends love "TENNESSEE". She has everything you can image on "T". She loved her "Tennessee" Snowman bowling ball ornament! Your imagination can be endless with this craft. I would like to see pictures of any craft made from old bowling balls. Have fun!
