Hydrangea Flower Ball

A few weeks ago, I posted about the flower "kissing ball" I made to hang on the Bear's door. Well, after that project I was so excited to try different variations! One of my favorite flowers is the hydrangea. I love the dainty petals and variety of colors and shades even on one bloom.

I picked up Martha Stewart's Hydrangea punch, pretty scrapbook paper, and some white headed pins. Then I punched and punched and punched out what felt like a million of those little petals. I was going for variation on the flower, so I used two colors, and stacked them, alternating which color was on top.

I had a 6" styrofoam ball in my stash. So once I had a bunch of flowers assembled, I pinned them into the styrofoam. Again, this was pretty time consuming. And I did not do the whole thing in one sitting. Or two. But I love the result! I plan to incorporate this into one of the girls' rooms - not sure which yet!

This idea has been featured on lots of blogs like this one, and here too. So I don't claim originality on this one. I just love being inspired by fellow bloggers!
