Bubble ball vases are clear glass containers that are shaped like round balls and generally without embellishment or decoration. They can be purchased for just a few dollars at craft stores or bought in bulk online. If you are thinking of making your own wedding centrepieces, these vases are attractive and will serve as a good base for a centrepiece. Of course, filling a vase with something is the simplest thing to do with one, but don't stop there; make your bubble ball wedding centrepiece as elaborate or simple as you like.
Autumn Leaves and Pumpkin Centerpiece
Gather fallen leaves that are brightly coloured and not too ragged to make leaf roses. You can preserve leaves by soaking them in glycerine or vegetable oil before you work with them. Roll several leaves of similar shades together and bind them with ribbon or twine at the bottom. Simply placing the bouquet in the vase makes a nice centrepiece, but to make better use of the bubble ball vase's shape, paint it like a pumpkin to accent the harvest theme.
Whimsical Magic 8 Ball Centerpiece
A bubble ball vase is shaped perfectly to be turned into a Magic 8 Ball simply by gluing black tissue paper to the outside. Cut out white circles and black number 8s to glue on the vase as well. Print and laminate happy predictions, such as "You will live happily ever after" or "You will travel to many romantic places" to put inside the vase. Include some of the original Magic 8 Ball sayings also, such as "Outlook positive" or "Ask again later." Your guests can take turns pulling out sayings and predictions while they wait for the toasts or first dance.
Disco Ball Centerpiece
If you plan on dancing the night away at your wedding reception, help set the mood with disco ball centrepieces. Buy mirror squares and clear glue or hot glue from the craft store. Carefully arrange the squares into lines going all the way around the bubble ball vase. Leave gaps between the squares to save time and mirror squares. Also, you can drop a candle or small battery LED into the vase, so the light shines through the gaps.
Under the Sea Romance Centerpiece
The bubble ball vase shape is similar to a fish bowl shape, so you can make unusual fish bowl centrepieces out of these glass containers. Instead of grey gravel at the bottom, add gravel in your wedding colours or use fake crafting jewels to cover the bottom of the bubble ball. Rather than placing the plastic ruins sometimes seen in fish tanks, place inexpensive plastic cake-topper arches on the gravel. If you use real fish in the centrepieces, be sure you, an attendant or one of your guests is responsible for all the fish after the big day.
