Paint each Smoothfoam ball with Melon Ball paint and let dry.

Die-cut multiple flowers from each of the 3 felts (there were 3 different flowers on this die, the number of each cut depends on which size ball you decide to use which flower on).

Glue the flowers on to each ball, allowing for some overlap so petals will lift upward against each other for more depth and dimension.

Mold enough clay flowers so you have 3 different kinds to use in the centers of each felt flower. Let the clay air-dry for 24 hours.

Paint each clay flower with a shade of Iridescents and let dry. Glue to the centers of the flowers on each ball.
