Flower Balls

I couldn't find carnation balls anywhere online so I figured they couldn't be that hard to make myself.  I'm in love with a website called They have a ton of craft stuff for wholesale prices.  So I bought some styrofoam balls, a truckload of carnations and went to town!

I started with a 5 inch styrofoam ball because I wanted them to be like the size of mini basketballs so regular sized ones. haha

I just got about 250 carnation stems which were like $20 from Save-On-Crafts

Then I pulled all the blooms off

And started sticking them in all over the styrofoam ball.

Here's the finished product.  Super easy, relative cheap and took me about a half hour to do all three.
