Can’t wait to use these at my wedding, affordable alternative to flowers for the crafty bride!!
how do you make them
used styrofoam balls sorry but not sure the size but came in a pack of six at the dollar store. Start by opening a paper clip, gluing and placing at the top for the ribbon. I attached my ribbon before starting to glue on flowers. I use 12 flowers to cover the ball, 5 sheet of tissue cut 5″x5″, folded like accordian, rounded the ends, tied in the middle and gently lift the tissue. I use push pins for extra security as well as glue and start at the top and work my way down to the bottom til all bare spots are filled. Find it a lot easier to do in stages as far as the tissue, fold, tie, cut, pull tissue untill all the flowers are made! Then start with the glue! Hope that helps!
