  • 1 6 inch Styrofoam ball
  • 25 silk flowers (note: get ones that are open so you don't need as many)
  • matching ribbon


Take Styrofoam ball, pull heads off of silk flowers and glue and press into Styrofoam ball. Glue silk leaves from silk flowers throughout ball. Hot glue matching ribbon so you can hang.

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



  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.


Approximate Time: 5-10 minutes without drying time
