Quick and Easy Floral Balls

My days are a little hectic this week.  
I have a handful of small projects that need my attention so today's post is going to be a fast one.

Floral balls have been on my to-do list of a while - What better time to give it a whirl than Thanksgiving!

  I used a three inch Styrofoam ball and one bunch of fall colored mums for each of the two balls I made.  After simply cutting the stems down to about 1 1/2 inches long I stuck them into the Styrofoam ball
- - no gluing required.  I kept the bottom clear of flowers so they would sit nicely into small containers.

Quick and easy doesn't even begin to describe how fast they went together.   

I think they look amazing against the sliver don't you?
