Hi ladies. Below is a picture of my centerpiece inspiration. My question for you is whether or not you think they used a styrafoam ball to achieve the fullness in the flowers. If so what size do you think they used? Do any of you have any tips on how to recreate the flower portion, do you glue the flower heads onto the ball or do you stick the ball with the stem… I’m a little lost!

I almost did this centerpiece myself, so I studied up on it! Here’s what you will need:
String of crystals, beads (whatever will hang low)
Hot glue gun
So what you do, it take the flowers and cut the stems to about 3-5 inches. You then poke the stem into the styrofoam ball (I used the backside of a pen to make the hole first) and then put the stem in. Use hot glue to keep it in place. (That’s the part that takes forever, letting it dry) Then place the next flower head next to the flower head and see where the stem should poke in next.
Now just make sure that you poke and glue in the strand of crystals that will hang low and then glue in the flowers around it!
Wrap ribbon around the vase and glue down where you want it. Place completed flower ball on top and tada!

PS – Depending on the size of your vase, you will only need a 2 or 3 inch stryofoam ball. I made 12″ in diamater flower balls using 3″ balls. It depends on how long you cut your stems.

Thanks! Your a lifesavor! Quick question…do you push the flower all the way next to the foam or do you leave a little bit of stem sticking out?

Leave some of the stem out. That way you get the height of fullness you want!
