Yoga ball never "looked" so fun, How to paint a yoga ball to look like an eye for a lawn Halloween Decoration

Yup you read right. I turned my yoga ball into a giant eyeball for a Halloween decoration for my lawn. The two bowling ball ones needed something to look at. hehe
This is how I did it:
The yoga ball already had concentric circles on it so it was super easy to pick one and simply mask off a circle for the blue part of the eye. I then taped some newspaper to cover the yoga ball from over spray. I used blue spray paint that I had in my stash but if you are going out to buy paint specifically for this project you probably want to get something that says it works on plastic or a primer. The blue was standard Krylon Interior/exterior and the black was Rust-oleum Painter's Touch Multi-purpose paint.
Here it is all painted.
I then repeated the process for the black center part of the eye.

I am keeping my "eye" out for another yoga ball so I can make a pair.

OK off to get the old Halloween decorations out and make some more new ones!

Brillant idea. Much better for my well being than using it for yoga. Crafting is my favorite therapy :)

Cheers!

Love this idea! I'd probably get more use out of my yoga ball as a Halloween prop anyway.
