Kissing ball

MAGAZINE COPY CAT CHALLENGE

BY

DABBIEDOO'S





  Hello dear friends...

Debbiedoo is such a lively and creative person that her

each effort and party becomes a HOT SHOT,

I always love to participate in her challenges and parties...

Although not every time but Sometimes

I have an opportunity to come and participate in her parties

Which are always a fun like today's

Magazine Copy Cat Challenge

How you can copy from the actual picture

is the basic theme of the party ...


In her post of  Friday, October 21, 2011

she posted a picture from Southern Living Mag

Which is my inspiration for today's challenge

The picture is





I always wanted to do a type of  Kissing Ball

and I am very thankful to Debb that her challenge  party

provokes me to do at least now...


 I made some changes in the composition of arrangement

but the basic theme is the same ...

Mine is 




I used the floral balls to stand on some my glass candle stands,

instead of a platter... 



  I made two in contrasting colour and tied a bow on the

neck of each stand

 The How To Do is very simple

I am sure all the material you will need already

available in your home ... 





Some flowers of your choice ... 

the only thing to remember that flowers should be in small in size

Plastic Balls ( very cheap)

Hot glue gun





Cut the flowers from the stem with hardly 1mm length  




 Like this you have atleast 15 to 20 flower at time

Dont cut all at once that may be you don't  need so much ...

After using all , if you need more than cut again 





First fit your ball in any Cup or  mug...
With that you can have easy access

and more comfortably you can work on it ...

First I glued  a flower in the center of the ball

the length of first flower stem is bit high than rest of all ...





Now its turn to glued four flowers equally on the sides
of First flower ...

Make sure that distances between up to down and right to left

is always equal ...
 it gives your arrangement a balanced symmetry

otherwise it will look like a mess ...





Here you can see the equal distribution of
four flowers around the center one ...





Now start gluing the third layer

In this layer you will fill the gap of above layer

between the two flowers ...





Like this you can add flowers til your ball has completed

Remember left a little bit from the bottom for the

perfect adjustment of your ball on the candle stand

or any goblet  if you want...




Here it is the end result 



The second one in contrasting colour



Two of them



Its easy, in expensive and sure a lot of decor for a corner...



In the last once again Iam very thankful to Debb that her

Challenge party make my an old wish comes to reality...

Eagerly waiting to see what other people create

Its fun ...and hope everyone will enjoy it ...

Waiting what do you say about mine


HAPPY PARTY
