(Here is a store bought version.)
So ladies, if you can wield a glue gun you can make these little guys. And when you are done you will look upon your creation and smile because of the money that is still in your pocket...or your hubby's. (Wink!) It's incredibly easy too. Pinky promise.
Here are the supplies:
- Moss (Michael's has lots to choose from)
- Hot glue gun (and glue of course!)
- Assorted sizes of Styrofoam balls
- Decorative twig balls
- Mod Podge (not pictured)
I started the moss balls first. All I did was hot glue small pieces of moss until it was completely covered. Easy as pie.
The yarn ones were a little bit more tricky...but not much. I tried hot glue at first, but it didn't work out so well. But have no fear, my trusty Mod Podge was near!
(In my craft drawer that is!)
I covered half the Styrofoam ball in Mod Podge (that stuff is the bomb dot com) and started wrapping the yarn around from the top.
Sometimes the yarn didn't want to stay in place, but after a few times of yelling "YOU WILL WORK FOR ME!" it finally listened. Thank goodness!
So in a little less than an hour, I made a new centerpiece for our coffee table. I just love all of those textures together. Next up is the dining room!
