Make your own mini Bob-ombs!

Supply list to build 6 of these from Hobby Lobby:
1 - bag 1 3/4" Ball Knobs (6 pcs) $2.99 1 - bag 3/4" Round Bead (8 pcs) $1.47 1 - bag 1 1/8" Circles (12 pcs) $1.47 1 - 1/8" dowel rod $1.49 4 - Craft paints $.79 each
Total cost: $10.58 + tax or ($1.76 each)
Building instructions, cut the small beads in half (I used a miter saw and a clamp), drill holes for legs into the larger ball knobs, drill hole for wick in wooden circle. Cut dowel for legs and wick. Test assemble and paint. Everything basically sticks together with paint, but you might want some glue if you plan on chucking them like grenades.
Fun cheap project.

Here's a more updated how to do



  1. This is awesome...but he lost me on, "I used a miter saw...", as I don't have one...though my hand saw may work.

  2. yea, these are awesome.. we are gonna try and make a few.. need to get a dremel tool first.

  3. if anyone puts together one of these and wants us to show it here on the blog, please email us with a link or put up a link to it here in the comments!
