Step 1: Materials
• White electric tape (or any other means of attachment)
• Thread or ribbon
• Spray paint
• Craft knife or scissors
Step 2: Where to Get Materials
• Whenever there is a little bit of tape left on a roll that seems to be too short to be usable, put it aside for a project like this.
• Much like the tape, if you have just enough thread left or ribbon left on a spool to seem useless, you will have just enough for this.
• After a major paint job on a horse trailer, my mom had a little bit of 4 colors of spray paint left. I used up the last of two bottles for this. Buying fresh cans is unnecessary.
Step 3: Loop Creation
2) Use the scissors to cut the scores around the entire tube, forming small loops. For this design (which is open to modification), you will need 32 loops.
3) After all loops are cut, fold each one on opposite ends to create a football shape.
Step 4: "Flower" Assembly
5) Create eight of these four-petal “flowers.”
6) Repeat Step four, but using the corners the “flowers” instead of individual loops. The result should be a two-by-two grid of four petal “flowers.”
7) Repeat Step six. You should now have two groups of four flowers.
8) If any two adjacent petals are not taped together, tape them together now. These will most likely be the outside center pairs.
Step 5: Unit Assembly
10) Wait for the paint to dry!
11) Align one grid of flowers (henceforth referred to as a “unit”) on top of the other.
12) Rotate one unit 45 degrees around the center.
13) Using thread or ribbon, lash the units together at the center at this angle however you see fit. This step is very much open to interpretation.
Step 6: You're Finished!
15) Hang it from the ceiling with left over thread! Hang it on the wall from any loop! Create multiple and hang them at odd angles for some snazzy wall decorations! Sell them and donate the profits to charity!
