As a base we will use a foam ball 10 cm And a piece of Pex/Al/Pex pipe 32 The length of the piece is about 15-20 cm Glue the ball to the pipe with hot glue Take a piece of 1 mm EVA foam Take light olive or lime color The piece should be enough to wrap the ball 2 times.
This piece is enough for me Cut off a strip of 6 cm.
Now measure out 2 cm.
And cut the strip, not reaching the edge of about 1.5 cm.
That is what should work. Thus we cut the whole strip..
Cut into Cut off the edge, make it sharp.
You can first trim on one side.
And then flip and trim with another.
Now the strip needs to be heated, and the petals wrap You can heat with a hairdryer, iron or above the stove, as you prefer..
This is what we should do. Thus we are working on the whole strip. We take another piece of EVA foam, measure 17 cm.
I have this strip 70 cm.
We divide a strip into 12 identical parts..
So, 12 pieces We form petals just like the rest.
This is what should happen. Thus cut all the petals.
Take Cosmofen or hot glue And twist 12 dense tubes.
Here such Now glue.
We need to make 12 of these tubes..
They remind me of Shrek's ears..
Cut a circle from the same EVA foam We will close the top of the base with it. To mask the white ball.
Now it is heated and stretched to the base..
Done! Now take the first row of petals And glue like this.
In 2 layers.
This is what should happen..
If you notice that the leaves are sticking out somewhere, carefully glue them..
Now we glue the Shrek's ears . They must be located above our middle. Like this And fit the whole ball tight It is necessary to glue not so that they stuck And so they fit tightly to the middle of the ball So that the "ear" does not move the petals That's the way to glue them all Please note there are only 12 They will not fit snugly together. Glue 4 parts first And then divide this distance between the rest of the details..
Sticking on hot glue.
Hold until glue is dry. Add some glue.
First ear stuck.
Be sure to wait until everything is well glued..
Opposite him we glue the second "ear".
At the same distance.
Now we need to glue on 2 pieces between those that we have already glued.
