Wish Flowers

I must have flowers on the brain. It’s all I’ve been thinking about lately. Probably because I love adding color to my home and flowers are the perfect way to do that. The problem is I don’t have extra money right now so I thought I would DIY some using supplies I already have. There may be a lot of flower tutorials in the near future. These Wish Flowers are my second type this week.

Here’s What You Need:
20 gauge wire
small styrofoam balls
ball straight pins
paint to match pins

Cut the wire 15″ long for each flower. Poke the wire a little over half way through each styrofoam ball. Paint each ball the desired color. Use a generous amount of paint to get in all the crevices. I used paint I already had and did the best I could to match the pin heads. They came out pretty close to what I wanted.

Once they were painted I let them dry over night. I love the texture and how they look fuzzy once they’re painted.

Start pushing the pins into the foam balls in a rather random way. I have a hard time being random so I’m working on that. I used however many pins I had of each color so the number varies.

They’re kinda fun don’t you think? Yeah, a bit unusual and maybe a little satellite-ish with a kinda mid-century feel, but I like them and hubby thinks they’re really awesome.

Since I’ve been in a bit of a decorating funk lately I didn’t have a dining table centerpiece, so that’s where the flowers ended up. Who needs fresh flowers when you can make them out of odd things around the house? Okay, I actually love fresh flowers but I have to admit these are making me smile.

How awesome is this picture where they almost look like real wish flowers.

    These are adorable! I love the pops of color you’ve been adding to your home. I am trying to do the same thing! We have a lot of wooden tone and neutral furniture, and also neutral walls and floors, so I am really trying to add more color as spring comes! Thanks for sharing your colorful projects!
