I saw this tute over at Hey Sis, where she made some awesome pom pom type flowers out of coffee filters! Soooooo cute, I immediately thought of how I could hang these around the inside of my canopy at the shows ...or maybe make smaller ones and string them together like garland? They look very shabby..and SO easy to make!
Here's what cha' need:
*Hot Glue Gun & glue stick
*A balled up wad of trash. LITERALLY
*Tape (Of any kind)
*Coffee filters (Your choice of color)
|Seriously. A wadded up ball of newspaper|
|Take your coffee filter and lay it out. Find the middle...|
|Then wrap the filter around your index finger..|
|REMOVE said finger, and apply hot glue to the tip of your "Flower Stem"|
|About the size of a Pea.|
|Press that little flower right onto your ball and KEEEEEPPPP Goin' sista! (Each ball used about 60-80 coffee filters...)|
|Here's that screw I was telling you about, on a different ball, Just push it right into your wad of paper and secure with some good ol' hot glue...|
|A close up of all your little coffee filters all glued down . End up looking like this.........|
OR I found these examples on the net..
So, Don't be shy..Tell me..
What should I do?...Hang muh' balls or String um' up??
Can't wait to see what says YOU!
