Gumball Flowers Tutorial 

Supplies Needed:

  • mason jar lid
  • assorted ribbon

Step One.   Cut a square of cellophane a little larger than the mason jar lid and lay it on top of the lid.  Add a large gumball to the middle.

Step Two.  Add small gumballs around the larger gumball in the center.

Step Three. Place the funnel end of the plastic balloon stick right on top of the large gumball in the middle of the mason jar lid.

Step Four.  Now you will gather up the cellophane around the gumballs and attach with the small rubberband to the plastic balloon funnel.

Step Five.  Finally, you will attach the stick to the top of the flower.  I trimmed the stick just about in half to make  the flower more to scale.  You may also want to add a dab of hot glue to the stick at the top to attach it to the funnel end.  Otherwise, it could separate easily.  To finish it off, add ribbon to fancy things up a bit!
