8" Styrofoam Balls

So...I am making my centerpieces with 8" styrofoam balls and feather boas (thank you Haley). I went to A.C. Moore, Michael's and JoAnn's to find the best price on the balls. Well, the cheapest I found was $14.99! I thought to myself "WOW...it's a fricken styrofoam ball!!!" but I bought one anyway...

I thought to myself "WOW...it's a fricken styrofoam ball!!!" but I bought one anyway (to do a 'test' run) because I figured I could probably find them online alot cheaper in bulk (I need at least 15). Well, to no avail...they are not cheaper online (unless I buy 36 for $175.00 plus shipping!).

Does anyone have any idea where to find these balls for less?

    Another idea.... foam sport balls? maybe at the dollar store?

    or a sports store.... $6 per for 10.... for 8 inch

    Goes to $4.75 per if you get the 7 inch

    These are silver and sparkly but since you are just gluing feathers over it it should not matter. They are $10 each
