Hydrangea Balls

Okay, I hope you guys aren't quite sick of my lunch bag scallop circle punch projects just yet because I have one last one for you.
They are made just like the Lunch Bag Hydrangeas we made the other day, just without the stem and with some ribbon ruffles added here and there.  For the most part I attached all the paper circles before attaching any scrunched bits of ribbon.  Once your foam balls are covered with your circles, cut a few inches of ribbon (mine was 1 1/2 inch satin) and pleat it in your hand, pick a place on your ball, glob on a big pile of hot glue and stick your ribbon in.

For the stand I used a candle stick and a bowl, both from the dollar tree (the bowl was actually 2 for $1!).  With some clear silicone attache the candle stick to the bottom of the bowl.  I also grabbed some faux moss rocks at the dollar tree wich made a nice bed for my hydrangea balls to sit on and a nice extra pop of color.
Put one on your table this spring!

  3. First, these hydrangeas are adorable!

    Secondly....I am squealing with delight! I LOVE all the gifts I received in the mail today from you. The wand...I'm drooling over (and hiding from my 3 year old)! I LOVE the bow...and since I just got all my hair chopped off, it will look adorable! The basket is super sweet, as is the chocolate and spring candle! Thank you so, so much!!! I can't wait to post pictures on my blog and Flickr. You're is on it's way shortly! You're to much!

    Most Sincerely~
