You Will Need
- Flowers of your choice.
- Wet Foam (not Styrofoam unless you use silk flowers.)
- Floral Pins
1. Wet the Foam
Wet the foam until it turns a dark green. This will allow your flowers to last longer inside the foam.
2. Cut Ribbon
Measure how long you want your flower ball to hang, and cut your ribbon according.
3. Attach the Ribbon
Tie the two ends of the ribbon together in a knot and place on the end of the foam. Use the floral pins to attach the ribbon to the foam.
4. Cut Flowers and Assemble
Cut your flowers at an angle about a quarter of an inch from the head. Insert the flowers into the wet foam until your form is completely covered.
You can also use other types of flowers such as carnations, sunflowers, mums, etc. The flower ball above is made with pink carnations.
