Instructions

Coffee Filter Poms

Step 1

 Spray-paint coffee filters

Separate coffee filters and flatten. Lightly spray-paint the centers of the coffee filters (we used Thistle Field and Everglade Glen). Let dry.

Step 2

 Wrap foam ball with coffee filters

Wrap painted filters around 2-inch, 3-inch, and 4-inch craft foam balls. Use as many filters as needed to hide the foam.

Step 3

  Attach coffee filters to foam ball

Cut 22-gauge wire into 3-in pieces and bend them in half. Take a painted filter from the pile and place the bent wire in the center. Gather the ends of the filter and poke the wire into the foam ball. Place the filters randomly all around the foam ball, then finish by filling in open areas until you can't see through to the center. Repeat until the ball is covered.

Step 4

Cut ribbon to a desired length. Gather the ends and stick a piece of folded wire through them. Press the wire into the ball and hang.

Flower Cone Spheres

Step 1

 Glue two cone cups together

Glue two cone cups together by adding drops of hot glue at the top and bottom and pressing them together. Repeat for multiple sets of cups.

Step 2

 Start to form cone sphere

Glue the pairs of cone cups together at the tops. A sphere will start to form. As the sphere gets close to the desired size, glue single cups in one at a time.

Step 3

 Attach ribbon to cone pom

When the sphere is complete, find a place that would make a good top. Cut a piece of ribbon to your desired length and hot-glue the ribbon to the sides of one cone.

Step 4

 Insert flowers into cone pom

Cut the stems off of the silk Gerbera daisies. Decide which cone openings to fill with flowers. Crumple a piece of scrap paper and hot-glue it inside the cone. Next, hot-glue the flower end to the crumpled paper. Each flower should slightly pop out of the cone, yet stay secure. Let dry and hang.
