Paper Hydrangea


The hydrangeas in my garden have started to bloom, but they do not last as long as I would like them to. Well, these paper hydrangea will hopefully last much longer..:)



Let's get to making these beauties..:)

You'll need:
--------------
- Paper
- Styrofoam ball cut in half ( I didn't have the styrofoam ball, but I had an old plastic baseball, which I cut in half to use.)
- Glue

Steps:
-------

- Cut a whole bunch of these flower shape petals.


- I curled the petals a bit using a pencil and started gluing  the petals close together to the ball, till it was all covered.


Pretty, right?..:)

  8. It's really pretty! I would probably try one of these using felt instead of paper, but I'm not sure I have the patience to cut all those petals...Anyway, thank you for joining The Really Crafty Link Party this week!

    1. Thank you Teresa!
      Sometimes, just to see how a completed project will turn out to be, you keep going. I didn't know I could be patient enough to cut those petals either 😀
