I loved the flower balls she made so I started going thru my stuff looking for supplies to make one.
I had lots of crepe paper and found a styrofoam tree…..no balls. So this is what I came up with.
A flower tree.
The crepe paper is vintage that I found at a thrift store. I think at one time it got wet and the color faded or ran so its kinda tye dyed. It was perfect for my tree.
So I had this tree. Now I needed a stand to put it on. I thought out of all the
junk knick knacks I have there has to be something I can put this tree on.
Then I saw the perfect thing.
One of those things you buy, but you don't know what you are going to do with. But its cool and cheep ~ dollar store cheep. In fact so cool that you buy 2.
The top of this whatever it is has a point which was perfect. I poked the point with some hot glue on it up into the tree and wala……a tree with a stand.
So this is the little green flower tree.
It took * f o r e v e r * to make all those roses
But I really like how it turned out.
Thanks Shelley for your tutorial. Go check it out….I think they would make a really cute gift to give someone special.
