Newspaper Flowers

I'm pretty bad at keeping real plants alive, so if I want floral decorations in my house, it behooves me to get fake ones. But here's an option for all of you lacking a green thumb like myself. All you need is some newspaper, hot glue, a styrofoam ball, and wire stems. Cut your newspaper into strips and then fold them over so it will create some mass. Roll up the strips and seal it with a drop of hot glue, and then hot glue it to the styrofoam ball. Repeat the process until the entire ball is covered. If you get brightly colored paper, these can create really cute bouquets. I actually made some of these for my wedding to go into some of the centerpieces.
