Ballard Alphabet Ball Knock Off

I have been seriously adoring these alphabet balls at Ballard's. They have always been sold out though, and I'm not sure of the price. I did see them at a little store for a buck a piece. Not too bad if you only want a few but I wanted to use them as filler and that would add up! So I came up with my own knock off version...

I got 2 packs of 6 ping pong balls for around $2.50 a piece. I used a upside down egg carton and spray painted them a antique white.

Then I cut out vinyl letters on my Cricut about a 1 1/2 inches. I only used 1 letter per ball but as I look at the Ballard version I might go back and add more that way you don't have to arrange them so carefully. For $5 Im pretty happy with the results!


  1. I love this idea. I have also seen them for $1.00 a piece, but who only wants to buy two or three of them. Thanks, I will have to try this!

  2. What a great idea! I LOVE it! I may have to borrow the idea! :)

  3. This is really cool. Saw your post at All Things Related so had to check it out. Awesome!
