So i wanted the most possible blinged out card box without spending a fortune. I finally finished...
Easy way to make hanging flower balls. Wiffle balls from dollar store, dollar store fake flowers, pull the stems off the flower, hot glue around the circle in the wiffle ball, press flower into the hole making sure the bottom of the flower, keep going until the ball is full of flowers, then hang with a ribbon. Genius!
Here's what you'll need:
Ribbon (if hanging)
Start by taking the flowers apart, leaving some length of the stem like this. If they are small flowers, they might have two or three blossoms all connected with one stem. It's fine...
Put some hot glue around the holes and tuck the stem inside, pressing the flower onto the glue.
If you want to attach a ribbon, do it when you have just a couple of holes left to fill. The first ball I made, I put the string in first and it just got in my way the whole time. But maybe you're more coordinated than I am! Put the ribbon through two holes and tie at the top.
Make sure your ribbon is long enough, mine were a little too short at first.
Use big flowers--it made the whole ball look bigger and fluffier.
If the flowers are small, you can put a couple of stems in each hole.
You'll need 2-3 bunches per ball, depending on how big the flowers are and how tight you glue them on.
I wondered if these would be great smelling if I put some essential oil on a cotton ball and put it in the middle before I glued flowers on....but I haven't tried it yet. Maybe they could help my car smell great!
And there you have it. They sure add a splash of color!!
