This cute craft is a great way to welcome spring. Have the kids help and use these balls to replace candles for a floral theme. It's as easy as just sticking fake flowers into a styrofoam ball and enjoy.

Approximate Time: 10 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Snip each flower off the stem, leaving a small point.
  2. Drizzle a bit of glue on the point and push it into the styrofoam.
  3. Repeat process until entire flower is covered.

This is a great way to use up old or left over fake flowers. If you don't have any on hand, try a local thrift store where you can get a variety on the cheap.

I made three of these balls, one from a 3 inch ball and the two others from 1 inch balls. I then set the balls out on my candle holders instead of candles.

You can paint the Styrofoam green before pushing in the flowers if you like. However, I preferred the crystal twinkle of the raw Styrofoam with my light beige and pink flowers.

These small and elegant decorations are perfect for throwing a formal, black-tie affair, such as wedding, prom, anniversary, graduation and the like.

The small black ball holds two black flowers on black stems. Each flower contains a clear gem center and the ball is decorated with a simple white ribbon.
