How to make a paper flower ball.
This weekend I thought I’d finally make something with a Styrofoam ball I had on hand. For some reason, ‘flower ball’ came to mind, and I got to work.
To make it, I used:
- a 2 1/2″ Styrofoam ball
- a 1″ daisy paper punch
- green, medium pink and light pink card stock
- small paint brush
First, I punched out a BUNCH of flowers using the green card stock. Then, using the paint brush, I put a bit of PVA at the center of them and glued them onto the ball.
I punched out medium pink flowers and glued them over the green.
Finally, I punched out the light pink flowers and glued them over the darker pink.
When the final layer was dry, I gently folded up loose petals here and there to give the flower ball more dimension. I set it in a little dish I found at the thrift shop. I could also see them perched atop a small vase. Or you could attach an ‘eye’ and hang them, OR you could insert a small dowel and make a flower ball topiary.
