Flower Bulb Tutorial

In case you missed it over at She Wears Flowers, here it is again!
Difficulty: Super Easy...I mean, really really easy
Time: 30 minutes
Cost: Less than 10 bucks
Fun-ness: Anything this easy has to be fun. 

Materials:
 Silk Flowers
Light Bulbs
Floral Wire
Hot Glue
Ribbon
Scissors

Directions
Step 1: Prep it!
Get out your aggression, and pop your silk flowers off their stems. Take your floral wire and cut 5 different 15 inch segments. Don't forget to twist the ends into swirls... don't worry, it doesn't have to be perfect. 


Step 2: Wire it
Twist your floral wire around the end of your light bulb. Wrap it around the metal end of the bulb and hot glue it down


Step 3: Flower it
Glob that hot glue all over the light bulb end, and onto the front of the metal as well. Press your silk flower directly onto the hot glue, and put a little more on top (you can never go wrong with too much hot glue...). And that's it. Just make 4 more, string them on some ribbon, and PRESTO, you've got yourself the perfect addition to any spring decor. 


And that's it!! So easy, and super cute.
