@SweetMelissa429:  If you’re having trouble arranging the flowers you could always get a half dome floral styrofoam piece and arrange them on that.  The flowers will follow the natural curve of the dome.  Very cute idea, I really like the moss in the clear vase.

I used paper flowers. The same ones you did, actually. I really like the idea that you have here. What I did to get my flowers into a ball was to stick them in a small styrafoam ball. And I used wire stems so I could shape them to be a sphere. Here’s what I ended up doing with them.



Instead of having three peacock feathers sticking up I would glue just one with the ribbon on the jar. I’d also add paper leaves to the flowers so that they look more like flowers.

I would suggest not having the feathers sticking so far up, but have them closer to the flowers– either gluing them as a PP suggested, or by just reducing the height.  Also, maybe reduce the number of larger paper flowers and increase the smaller size ones, the larger ones look a little overwhelming.

I think it looks great! I love the flowers. I agree that I would like to see more of the smaller ones. And maybe some more color variation. But I think they’re going to turn out great!!!

@SweetMelissa429:  Looks great!  I might add a rinestone to the knot in the ribbon, but that’s just me.
