Uses for Old Basketballs & Soccer balls Answered

I have access to loads of old basketballs and soccer balls that are always floating in the river by my house. (they get washed into the river from people's yards whenever it storms) They're usually fairly worn and dry-rotted from sitting in the sun but most of them still hold air.
I was trying to think of some type of outdoors, maybe flowerbed/garden related, craft I could use them for. I'm looking for practical uses or even artistic uses. I've thought about cutting them in half and making hanging planters, but we don't really have any places to put hanging planters in my yard.

If you have any ideas or inspiration, please do share.


Maybe you can cut them up and make a mosaic kind of mural with them.

Fill a big net with them, make a swimming island?
