  • Level:beginner
  • Time:few hours + dry time

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Paint the foam balls Kelly Green. While they are still wet, sprinkle with Kelly Green glitter. The paint will hold the glitter in place as it dries. Set aside.
  • 2
    Cut a 21"” length of Red mesh and a 16”" length of Green mesh. Lay the Red mesh on the table with the ends curling up. Lay the Green mesh in the center of the Red mesh with the ends also curling up. Pull opposite corners of the Green mesh to create two points. Pinch the Green mesh together at the center and hold in place. Fold in two opposite corners of the Red mesh to meet in the center overtop of the Green mesh. Pinch the Red mesh together at the center with the Green mesh and tie together with floral wire. Flip the petal over and bend in half at the center. Insert a floral pin through the center of the mesh, apply glue to the pin and insert into the side of the foam disc. Repeat to create four more petals. Attach the petals around the foam disc evenly spaced.

    Cut three more 21”" lengths of Red mesh. Fold in the opposite corners and gather the mesh at the center the same way you did in step 2, only without the Green center. Pin these three petals evenly spaced to the face of the foam disc, about 1"” in from the edge.
  • 4
    Cut 10"” lengths of the Green mesh. Gather and bend them in half at the center. Insert a pin through the center and glue in place to the center of the foam disc.
  • 5
    Glue the foam balls onto 3"” lengths of chenille stem. Glue the stems into the center of the foam disc.
