Some of the dollar stores (I think Dollar Tree) are selling "ball & chain". The balls are great for cannonballs. Just snip off the small plastic loop connecting them to the cheapo chain, then dry brush with brown and grey. My husband can churn out a finished cannonball in just a few minutes. Maybe worth a try?

Yaarrr!!!! Nice job, matey! I used some styrofoam balls and metallic spray paint for our cannon balls. Hot glued four of them together to make a little stack that won't come apart.
Ye can't beat a good pirate display!!!!
