Mmmm…there’s just something about the smell of a hot glue gun warming up.
As promised, today I’ll give you the play by play of the flower pomanders. (aka – flower balls) Before I get started, here’s the link for the pinterest source. Sadly, this was not my genius idea. Gah. http://www.thediydish.com/2011/04/welcome-viewers-from-the-rachael-ray-show/ And yes, if you click on the link you will see that this craft was featured on the Rachel Ray Show.
Seriously, why did I not think of this first?! 😉
Alas, here’s what you’ll need:
– flowers of your choice (I think the bigger blooms look prettier)
– wiffle balls (for however many pomanders you want to make)
– hot glue gun / glue
– ribbon (if you want them to hang)
And here’s what you do:
Pull off your blooms…tie the ribbon on if you wanna. 😉
Put hot glue on the base of the flower & pop it into one of the holes.
Contine until all the holes are filled with blooms…
And before you know it…ta-da! 4 pomanders complete!
Then you can hang ’em…
So simple right?! You can do it, you can do it!
And if you feel like you won’t get them done before V-day…then no worries! Make a St. Patricks day ball, or an easter-themed ball, or get your beautiful spring blooms out and ready. Better yet, have a crafty night with friends….this is the perfect <practically brainless> craft to work on while you talk & eat!
KEEP CALM & PLUG IN THAT GLUE GUN!
