Christmas Baseballs - Recycled and Repainted

I found some baseballs in my "stash-of-stuff-to-paint" pile and decided to paint them up for Christmas. I only painted three balls, but there are 4 "sides" to each ball making a total of 12 different painted images...


Baseballs are pretty easy to paint. First, I basepainted everything white. I painted half of each ball red, and then did a rich chocolate brown wash over the entire ball to give it an aged look. Next I created some original art and used some patterns I had to come up with twelve different Christmas paintings.

Here are closeups of each "side"...


These look great nestled in greenery on a decorated mantle, or on candlesticks or cakeplates, in bowls, or just any little nook or cranny that needs splash of Christmas cheer!
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
