Somehow I have about a million of these:
I’m pretty sure I have a breeding population somewhere. I have white, silver, red and burgundy. In three sizes. The big ones, the little ones and the long sprays. I’m best with the long sprays, they work really well in garlands and wreaths. The big bobble ones, not so much. But I keep buying (or atleast finding) them. Finally I figured out something to with them!
Basically it’s a six petal flower. You need:
- Wire Cutters (or scissors you don’t really care about)
- Hot Glue
Using the wire cutters, cut the berries off. Leave as little ‘stem’ as possible. Inspect the bobbles, sometimes they have odd bumps that you don’t want on your flowers. Now it’s time to start gluing!
Glue two together, then make a triangle. Keep gluing around the center until you get the the last one. It’s a bit of a squeeze sometimes, just add more glue and squish.You could add one to the center of a bow:
Or use them to add some pearly glamour to a winter scene
Maybe prop one up against your magazine tree??
