•dried Spanish moss
•green soft moss (Michael's $4.99)
•faux butterflies (I think they were around $3.99 or so…for 3)
•beaded wire (or you could bead some yourself!)
•one 5" twig ball ($4.99 ea.)
•miscellaneous woven threads/yarns
•wired rhinestones (the ones I used were vintage, but you could just use rhinestones)
•fimo blue egg (handmade by Mom, but you can find them at craft stores)
•hot glue gun
First, I took my twig ball and put some of the green moss down inside of it. It can be a little tricky to get stuff in there, but if you push back some of the twigs, you can create a hole to put things through (without damaging the actual ball itself) and then pull them back into place when you’re finished.
Then, I wanted to embellish the twig ball itself and give it the same feel that the inside of the ball has. So, I took the faux Spanish moss and the beaded wire and entwined them with the twig ball itself.
Once that was finished, I was ready to give it a handle! So, I took a piece of sheer ribbon (about 1.5 feet long) and tied it to the twig ball. And, there you have it! I cannot wait to carry this little ball of handmade love down the aisle!
