Home Decor Hop Day 1

Welcome to the Home Decor & More blog hop. This is a 2 day event, so be sure and join us both days for even more projects! Our host is Cicily the Pink Dalmatian Scrapbooker. If you came from Melissa Pinter

We all have drawers, closets & possibly rooms full of scrapbooking supplies. Those beautiful, colorful supplies don't have to be limited to our pages. We hope to inspire you to use your supplies in Home Decor projects that add that special touch to our homes.

What can you make out of a Styrofoam ball, flower pot, dowel rod,  and coffee filters?
A bush!! That I cant kill!!

Ok so you need some glue, I used becon 527 and straight pins. I also sprayed it with some knock off glimmer spay. And some floral tape. I kind of like this bush.
First you need to fold your coffee filters in to half then half again.
I wrapped my dowel rod with green floral tape. I used some packing material I had laying around to make the dowel rod stand up in the pot. Then I pushed the ball on to the dowel rod.
Next take your Styrofoam ball and working in small sections apply your glue. And attach the coffee filters. You will need the stick pins to hold the coffee filter in place on the ball until it dries. Try pinning in a pattern.
Once your ball is covered and dry scrunch the coffee filters on the ball to make it look fluffy. Then add some glimmer spray. I used some more filters stuffed in to the pot and sprayed them green.
The various sizes and shaped of Styrofoam balls could make this a fun project for any holiday.
eggs, wreaths, you name it. i got a wreath too so thats the next on the agenda.
