  • Styrofoam® Ball, 6"
  • Stem Bundles – Rosebuds (8 to 10 per Bundle, 175 Buds)

  • X-ACTO® Knife (Optional)
  • T-pins

Project Instructions

Use wire cutters and cut off stems from flowers, leaving approximately 1½" of stem. If stems have tubes, use an X-ACTO® knife to cut off the tubes.

Dip stems into hot glue skillet before inserting into the Styrofoam®. Insert flower heads into the Styrofoam®, alternating colors of flowers, until the foam is completely covered.

Cut 20" of ribbon and fold in half. Push T-pin through both ends of the loop and insert into the foam. It is recommended to put hot glue on the T-pin before inserting into the foam.

With the remainder of the ribbon, create a multi-looped bow. Hot glue the bow at the base of the loop.
