Chenille Stem Flowers
Inspired by the first day of summer, these Chenille Stem Flowers are simply adorable and so fun to make! All it takes is Bump Chenille Stems, 2″ Styrofoam Balls, Green Pipe Cleaners, and a tall vase for display. No glue or drying time! Both kids and adults will love creating these. Oh, & we must say, they are SOOOO soft!!!
- Bump Chenille Stems
- Green Chenille Stems
- 2″ Styrofoam Balls
- Scissors or Wire Cutters
- Small Opening Tall Vase
4) Create the loop by using your other hand to press each end together. The bump chenille should wrap around your index finger.
5) Then simply hold the chenille bump at near the end and it is ready to insert into the styrofoam ball.
6) With the ends together, press the loop into the 2″ Styrofoam Ball. Start by adding a single row all around the middle. Begin the 2nd row by offsetting the loops from the 1st row (start with the 1st loop in front & center of the back row of loops). This will create a random pattern and look better when finished. Continue adding loops until the entire stryofoam ball is covered with the Yellow Bump Chenille!
7) Display 3 finished chenille flowers in a tall vase with a small opening at the top to support the flowers.
Choose from the following colors: Red, Green, Orange, Black, Brown, Yellow, Pink, White, & Multi!
