Supplies:

Tools needed:

Low Temp Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Directions for making with silk flowers:

Pull the roses off the stems or use a wire cutter to remove -leaving a 1/4″ on each. Using a toothpick make a hole in the Styrofoam ball for each rose bud you are attaching. Then fill  with a dot of hot glue – place the rose in hole. Let dry. Continue adding roses until the ball is filled.

You can insert a few leaves between the roses for added color.

Directions for fresh flowers 
You will doing the same as above but instead of a Styrofoam ball use an Oasis foam ball for fresh flowers. Also instead of using hot glue to hold your flowers in place use greening pins instead. 

To make a handle

If you want to carry your rose ball you can easily make a handle. Use ribbons or jute. Measure desired length x 2 and add 3 inches for the knot. Tie into a loop (double knot). Hold in place with greening pin.  Then hot glue another greening pin over the top.
