I'm just a girl with a labelmaker

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 TherapyAnd here’s the super simple process of creating these…

YOU WILL NEED:

-White (or off-white) cotton yarn

-Sharp scissors

-Branches/twigs

1) Begin by wrapping the yarn around your hand – many times…

2) Slide the wrapped yarn off of your hand and tie a 10″-12″ piece of yarn around the middle, knotting very tightly…

3) Holding it by the tail (the piece you tied around the middle) begin cutting the loops…then shake it all out…

4) Using sharp scissors, start trimming the ends to shape it into a ball (trim the tail off too)…

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…

8) You may need to trim the end of your sticks to make a sharper point…

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.
