Make Recycled Faux Metal Spheres

West Elm style on practically no budget?  Yes, it’s possible!  Believe it or not, Taryn from Design, Dining + Diapers grabbed some cereal boxes out of her recycling bin and used them to create these stunning faux metal spheres.  In a store you would probably expect to pay $15 to $20 each for the real metal spheres, but nobody will expect to find out that you made these yourself, and that they started out life as humble trash!  Try painting them different metallic shades for different effects, or skip the metallics altogether and make them any color under the rainbow to blend with your decor.  [how to make recycled faux metal spheres]
