Phoomph (an amazing new product from Clover)
Wrap a small clay pot in tissue paper and adhere with Mod Podge. I used two sheets of tissue paper on my pot.
Insert foam ball into clay pot. Press down to get an indention on your ball.
Use a Styrocutter or other cutting tool to cut the ball along that line.
Your ball will now fit into your pot.
Wrap some short dowel rids with washi tape.
Insert washi covered dowels into ball in three different locations.
Add some ribbon randomly onto your ball with hot glue. We are going to cover this entire area with buttons in a few minutes. The ribbon is only for those areas that may be visible in between the buttons. I also wrapped the upper portion of my pot with some blue embroidery thread.
To make the fabric flowers, apply fabric to both sides of the Phoomph sheet then cut into a rough circle.
Cut that circle into a spiral as shown.
Starting in the middle use hot glue to form your spiral into a flower. Add buttons to the center of each flower.
