Lately the days here have been getting sunnier, warmer and simply... more beautiful! It feels like Spring. And, honestly, I want it to be Spring! So, in honor of the impending season, I decided to get a head start on my Spring decorating. :)
I stumbled across this pretty picture on Pinterest and it gave me just the inspiration I needed to create this simple, paper flower balls. :)
* Styrofoam balls (I used 2" and 3" balls)
* Glass head pins
* Silhouette, flower shaped craft punch, or stencils
* Cardstock or craft paper
* Bamboo skewers
I actually went out and purchased this small flower-shaped punch for this project. It was only $2.99 at JoAnn's with a coupon. Score! I could have used my Silhouette, but I thought that this would be a bit easier.
Start by punching out your flowers. I would punch out a whole sheet's worth at one time.
Then place your pin through the middle of the flower, fold up the petals and push it into your styrofoam ball. Be sure to leave a space to insert your bamboo skewer in the bottom of each ball. (The larger ones actually came with with a hole all ready made for the skewer!)
And... that's it! So easy. It only took me a few episodes of Glee to make this little bouquet. I love how it turned out and can't wait to place it on my Spring mantel. :)
Happy Friday, friends! :)
