January 5, 2012 Pinned it, Did it. Week 1: Yarn Dandelions
It’s getting pretty cold out and I’m really missing seeing flowers outside the window. I’m not much on fake flowers and plants, but here’s something fun and a little different from the traditional silk flower arrangement with plastic leaves. Here’s my inspiration(pinned) photo, found on Apartment Therapy…And here’s the super simple process of creating these…
YOU WILL NEED:
-White (or off-white) cotton yarn
5) Roll the ball around in your hands to fluff it up a little, stopping occasionally to trim pieces sticking out… 6) Repeat step 5 until you are happy with the shape and size…7) Go outside and pick up a few sticks out of the yard…
9) Push the end of the stick into the middle of the “dandelion”, you should be able to get right into the center (through that piece that you tied around the middle earlier). Be gentle so that you don’t push all of the yarn out…remember these basically just need to attach, they won’t be moved around too much.
