CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Mother's Day Bouquet
  • Cardstock
  • City Sidewalks Pink Paislee
  • Krylon Glitter Blast Sparkling Waters
  • Krylon Glitter Blast Diamond Dust
  • Half of a 4 in Styrofoam Ball
  • Omega Wire
  • Tulle
  • Hot Glue
  • White Ball Seweing Pins
  • Beacon Tiger Bond Adhesive
  • Recollections Glittered Paper

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut Styrofoam ball in half. Spray with Krylon Glitter Blast in Sparkling Waters. Allow to dry.
Cut from Cricut:
Winter Woodland- at 1.5 and 1.25 in. 50 total. I cut these from City Sidewalks from Pink Paislee in coordinating prints. Mother's Day Bouquet- at 1.0 in. 50 total. I cut these from Recollections Glittered paper. George and Basic Shapes- Real Size ON 5 in and 4.75 in. 2 of each in red and green cardstock.
(Optional ink edges of flower cuts with CTMH Blush (small poinsettia cut) and Sweet leaf Inks (large poinsettia cut)
Assemble flowers stacking from large to small. Using a white ball sewing pin stick the flower cuts into the pin. Then place the pin into the styrofoam ball. I spaced mine a bit apart so I could see the glitter underneath the flowers. if you place the flowers closer together you will need more flowers.
Take an 8 inch piece of Omega Wire (I bought mine at Michaels but any thicker gauge floral wire will do also) and spiral the hook. Leave a portion straight to insert into the styrofoam ball and a the top portion straight to fashion into a hook for the tree. Apply a small amount of adhesive the the bottom part of the wire and insert into the styrofoam ball. Now your ornament is ready to hang.
Once all flowers are on the ball, hand pleat tulle to the bottom of the back of the styrofoam ball using hot glue. Next adhere the two small circles together. Adhere the two large circles together. Then adhere the small circle on top of the large circle making on base. By doubling the cardstock it is very sturdy. These are the base of the ornament. Spray the two sets of cuts with Krylon Diamond Dust Spray paint to add lots of shimmer and sparkle. Allow to try. Next place a small even coating of Tiger Bond adhesive to the back of the styrofoam ball and place onto the dried cardstock circle base. This adhesive take a while to dry but is super strong and durable.
