Mothers Day Flower Bouquet


The pictures do not do this justice it's so much prettier!

My mom love's yellow flowers so I decided to make her a yellow bouquet and share the instructions with you!!! To make the bouquet you will need a clear glass vase if you want to do the vase too, krylon spray paint, white acrylic paint, coffee filters, a wiffle ball a wooden skewer, and ribbon (optional).


To start out I spray painted a glass vase I had cleaned with alcohol with Krylon spray paint in a yellow let dry completely. Very bright!


I made a white wash with equal parts water and white acrylic paint and painted all over the vase and let dry partially.


Then I took a paper towel and wiped lightly wiped off some of the white paint and let dry. Much better color now! And the vase is done!!!

Get your wiffle ball and coffee filters and a pencil and glue gun.

Place your pencil eraser side down in the middle of the coffee filter and twist the coffee filter around the pencil. This is to help glue the filters on the ball so you don't get burned!!!

Press into the holes on the wiffle ball and continue until every hole is filled with a coffee filter.

Here is what you end up with a big coffee filter puff!

Spray paint the color of your choice I did mine yellow, Then lightly misted a white spray paint on top.


Scrunch up the coffee filters, and then fluff for added texture.


Add glue to the end of your skewer, and press through one of the middle of the coffee filters on the ball and hold on the top of the ball to secure.


Place your finished flower in your finished vase add a ribbon around the top of the vase and your done!!!

Come back tomorrow to see what I add to go with it!

What are you making for your mom???

Very sweet. I thought you were going to use the wiffle ball as a flower frog. This project is very clever!
