Does any one know where you can purchase the ornamental ball from? I think it would make for some fantastic christmas decorations, and would like to start around September, if I can locate a ball...

thanks for your help!

Spotlight have them or similar, but they may not have them until closer to Christmas.

Thanks Bronwyn! I don't usually shop at spotlight, I must confess as it is a bit 'out of the way' up here, it is a fair distance from home and it can be a bit of a maze to get in and out sometimes, but I will definately stop by and have a look see what they have and enquire about the balls. Do you know if they do other shapes as well? Or are they just round? Just curious as I am looking for a small (quail sized) egg shape to make a bird with, just to shape the paper. I want to make a couple of white doves to sit inside my heart I have made. I will look and see then too.

Thanks again, sorry about the tangent in thoughts above... Have a fabulous weekend!

Hi Belinda,
I have seen star shapes in the clear ornaments.
Egg shapes usually appear close to Easter.
You may be able to get a foam egg shape if that helps. Spotlight have alot of foam shapes

This place has them online if you are interested
http://www.pollysbeads.com.au/Shapes/plastic.htm

Polly's Beads are always at the craft fairs around Australia so I think their ordering service should be OK

I went to Polly's beads web site and had a look, and they have a divisable egg shapes and balls and heaps of other useful things that would be good! Awesome! I purchased a couple of balls and can't wait to get started for Christmas decorations.

I do hope I can find some of these balls in Canada. I know I have seen them a few years ago and of course I didn't buy any at the time. That would have been too easy! These would make nice Christmas presents for my friends who like things that are handmade so I think I will start making some circles and shapes to have them ready once I find some balls.

I wonder what it would look like if I took a clear glass ball, (I know I have those) and covered it with quilling overtop. I'm not sure I would be as happy with it though.

Heather, I think a glass ball would be fine but I would perhaps just do a decoration on the outside and not cover all the glass.JMHO
I am sure you will have fun planning your quilled Christmas gifts.
