flower puff things!

so, i found this do-it-yourself tutorial on how to make these cute little guys here. right now our house seems very brown to me, and i was looking for an inexpensive way to add some color. they are so easy to make, and kind of addictive. i have made about a million of them (slight exaggeration), so now i am finding ways to put them to use.
the most obvious to me was to glue them to fabric floral stems and make flowers:

but i suppose you could also make christmas ornaments, use them in gift wrapping, bunting, and apparently they make great cat toys...

i know this because the other morning i found tiny little pieces of string all over the bedroom floor. i guess they dug one out of my yarn box and completely obliterated it. they are crafty little hellions.

i think next i will try to make a brooch or a necklace with the fuzz balls and maybe mix in some feathers or some vintage pins i have stored away. we shall see...

i think i like these guys enough to incorporate them into the wedding. maybe a fresh flower alternative? or have them displayed in a big glass vase? or maybe make a garland out of them? i just don't know yet...
