Planets 🌍🌎🌏

For my sister-in-law's outer-space-themed baby shower, we put together these planet-filled centerpieces.Β 

My kids and niece and nephew made the planets! We put different-sized wooden balls into a glass pie plate with squirts from paint inside and rolled them around. As they bumped into each other, they made swirls and streaks very reminiscent of a planet's atmosphere.

Air plants and fire glass completed the look. We were very proud of these!
