This month’s  Floracraft® challange is FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Balls

with the theme CELEBRATION!!! (so many different shapes and sizes!!)

make it fun

I knew instantly that I wanted to do a garland of some sort..but a realllllly colorful one! cause I love color.

You just need some tissue paper and  glue! supplies I poured out the glue so I could dip my paint brush in it…then painted on a coat on the balls. paint on glue

cut a square of tissue paper and placed glue ball in it and wrapped! Since the tissue paper is thin it will really stick well…but you can add little glue here and there as needed! tissue paper balls

I took a big yarn needle…threaded it with bakers twine and popped it through the ball to make a cute garland! needle through the ball styrofoam wrapped balls for a party garland

and it ended up turning into this… 6a00d8341e126453ef0115724389c9970b-500wi

It was NOT pretty. I mean…i still ate it. But not photo ready!

So instead took some FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam wreaths  in two different sizes and wrapped them in poster board and ribbon to make a fun cake stand! (they actually have cake stand ones HERE) but I just worked with what I have!!!
