Balls again? For another party?

After my last stress induced anger parade from trying to make ball decorations for a wedding I find myself again in a position of volunteering myself to make another type of balls, the infinitely easier tissue paper balls.

My first step, of course, was to procrastinate to the last possible second to recreate this photos decorations.


The shower is January 31st.

So after watching several awful you tube tutorials, some of which were an advert for why you shouldn’t even attempt them, why you should buy from their company (really?), I figured it out.


First attempt was ok.


Then, I decided to flip the way I was doing the fluffing, and also to iron the tissue paper (on the lowest setting, to prevent disaster). I had to take a picture to remember how


As I then had to run to Walmart to refill the party drink needs of my husband and his drunk friends. It is not fun to go to Walmart after 12 on a normal night, but this time it was creepier than usual, due to the ridiculous amount of fog.




Baby B saw these, and wanted to crush them, so now they are hanging in my studio area


Grey tissue paper, btw, very very VERY difficult to find. Otherwise, I am happy with them so far.

But I still have about 10 more to do.

We shall see!

    Your volunteering skills are well over and above the call of duty! What a wonderful wife and friend you are!! That fog looks like a scene from a Stephen King movie. But your balls look fabulous I have to say! šŸ™‚

      Hahaha! Thank you. I am happy with my balls!

      I try to be, I figure you have to use your talents for sharing with the ones you love.

    Stunning ball flowers – fullsome & colourful. You’d make THE best parties… THE best.
