InstructionsI created all of the flowers with the Clover flower maker. I made roughly 100 flowers. I then came up with the dome idea myself and took a styrofoam ball, cut it in half and pinned all of the flowers on to the styrofoam to make a flower bouquet. You want to pin them close together so you don't leave any open space.

Voile solid green fabric, thread, hand sewing needle and a styrofoam ball
What was your inspiration?
I wanted a way to display the cake pops as the centerpiece for my bridal shower. The only way I knew how was to stick them in styrofoam. So I created a 'flower' bouquet out of fabric and it make an amazing centerpiece. I put the bouquet on a plate that I sat on top of a flower vase.
What are you most proud of?
I was most proud of the fact that everyone that came to the party thought the fabric flowers were real flowers! I had to tell everyone, 'no, touch it!' and when they discovered it was fabric they freaked out!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I would say if you want to create this project for a similiar type of event, start it EARLY. Just this little bouquet took over 100 of the individual flowers. I think this would be stunning for a wedding reception but you would have to have many hands in making all of the flowers. It is all hand work so it's quite time consuming. It's a great project to do while in front of the tv. You want it packed with flowers so you don't see a lot of the styrofoam showing through the flowers
