Isn’t this crepe paper flower ball great? I think it is the wonderful spring weather we are having in Virginia, but I am in love with those floral balls. The ones with crepe paper are not only decorative for weddings and parties, but I don’t mind hanging one at home. I was however looking for a tutorial of a flower ball made with real flowers..and I found a great tutorial at www.apairandaspare.com. I followed her instructions so I am not going into great detail this time. You do need at least 3 bunches of flowers (you really need a lot of flowers!), an oasis ball, ribbon for hanging, floral sheers, maybe some flower essence. And do not fill your oasis beforehand with water! I made that mistake myself and the flower ball became too heavy to hang for a couple of days.
I used carnations in soft pink. I only used the flower head with about 2″ of the stem. After you are all done, attach a ribbon at the top with a pin. At the end you run the oasis under tap water for a few minutes or soak it in a bucket with some flower essence added to it. I like how it turned out and this is such an easy spring project I think I am going to make more…
Here are some different variations of a floral ball. Some are made with crepe paper others are felted. This is what I found on the internet:
Maybe I inspired you to make a colorful floral ball?
