Magnolia Flower DIY

One of my favorite things about spring is seeing the beautiful blooms blossoming on trees this time of year. The blooms from magnolia trees are certainly one of the prettiest around. As part of the Spring Holiday Craftacular blog hop, I decided to create a flower ball using silk magnolia flowers!

 

One of the best things about this DIY project is the fact that there’s so few items that you’ll need to complete this project. Here’s the short list (all can be found at your local Arts & Crafts store):

1) Foam Ball – I used a 6 inch round ball.

2) 4 sets of silk magnolia stems. Be prepared to pay at least $9.00 for each set (even with 50% off discount). So worth it though!

Note: I purchase these blooms from A.C. Moore.
