A gorgeous gazing ball can add sparkle to your planting bed. With just an old bowling ball, some embellishments and adhesive, you can create this beautiful accent in less than a day. Unleash your creativity with glass beads ...

... go completely contemporary with simple metal washers from the hardware store.
