- Aileene's Tacky Glue
- Plastic craft tweezers
- Hot Glue
- Parchment paper
- Floral stem wire and tape
First, spread a generous amount of tacky glue around the edge of the spoon bowl. Then take the end of twine and place it on the bottom center of the back of the spoon bowl where the handle meets and hold it in place with your finger. Begin wrapping the twine around the edge of the spoon . . .
Continue wrapping the twine around and adding glue to the spoon until it is completely covered. Cut off excess twine when you reach the center. Dab extra glue to center twine to hold down. Then, wait a few minutes for glue and twine to set up.
Next, lift wrapped twine petal from spoon being careful to keep it together.
Lay the petal on parchment paper to dry with the spoon touching side facing up. Make several more petals - five to six per flower. I thought I could make lots of petals to make more than one flower, but found making petals to be quite time consuming. Unfortunately, I had several projects going on at the same time so one flower is all I could do at the time.
Make a small pom pom with yarn for the flower center - by wrapping yarn around two of your fingers . . .
and tying it off with a small piece of yarn . . .
then cutting the loops in half.
Fluff and shape pom pom. Attach with hot glue to floral stem wire that is folded in half together and wrapped with floral tape.
To form the flower, add hot glue to base of petal and squeeze together like a scoop and let dry.
Once all the petals are formed, begin hot gluing on, one by one, to the floral stem wire and bottom of the pom pom.
Make sure the bottom sides of the petals are touching and glued together as you add each petal . . .
until the flower is formed.
Makes for quite a unique and fabulous look, don't you think! Now to make lots more!
