How to make a Giant Rose Ball!

So you want to add a little flair to your wedding without the big costs...then this is how you make a giant "silk" rose ball, that no one will ever believe is not real! We took a giant bouncy ball (sale them at Target for $4.99) and then covered it in duck tape (does not matter what color duck tape, but if you want to get the color that matches your roses, all the better). Go to Hobby Lobby when they are running their rose bushes 1/2 off and buy 12 - 15 bushes of roses. Chose a color that is natural to nature (don't do odd colors!). Snipe off the roses from the stem and hot glue it to the duck taped ball. Our recommendation is to start in the center and make an X on the top of the ball and then fill in each section as you go along! What floral designers will charge you $350 - $500 for a rose ball you can do for little as $60 - $70! As you can see from the pictures, this rose ball is beautiful and deceiving as it is a silk rose ball.

Hi, I was wondering what purpose the duck tape serves. Are you using it to protect the ball from heat?
