Mesh Loop Flower
Skill Level: Beginner
- Use Floral Shears to cut sixteen 10″ lengths Purple Decorative Mesh.
- With one length, make petal by folding both long (raw) edges to middle of length. Then fold in half with short ends meeting. To taper open end of petal, fold over both sides and secure with floral pin (angled in) to top edge of Disc (about 2″ from edge for adequate support.) Repeat process to make total of 16 petals going all around Disc edge.
- For flower center, cut 62 Orange Mesh pieces, 6″ long (which will be squares). Use point of pencil to make one 3/4″ deep hole in rounded side of Half Ball. Apply dot of hot glue into hole. Make Mesh “tuft” by setting eraser end of pencil in middle of one Mesh square. Gather edges of Mesh up around pencil and press eraser end with Mesh, down into hole, pressing enough for Mesh to connect with glue, but not so much that eraser sticks. Remove pencil, leaving Mesh tuft in place. Continue making holes 1/2″ apart and inserting Mesh squares, all over rounded part of Ball Half.
- Hot glue flat side of Mesh-covered Half Ball to center of Disc with Mesh petals. (Note: Petal ends will be sandwiched in between.) To hang Mesh flower, insert large paper clip into upper back of Disc, allowing end of clip to extend out for hanger loop. Secure with hot glue.
