How to make faux cotton stems
You’ll need:Cardboard egg cartons Hot glue gun & sticks Paint brushes Cotton balls – Really any size will do. Scissors Beige brown and dark brown paint. Thread Branches
Let’s get started, shall we?!?Separate the individual egg cups from the carton by cutting them with scissors. Cut four petal-like shapes around the cup. This will form the pod of the cotton ball.
If you have branches with long limbs, you will want to trim them. Make sure that you pick a branch that is strong, not a more bendable type like Quaken Aspen.
We’ve got our branch and “petals”, so now we need to add the cotton. I used jumbo sized cotton balls because that’s what I found, but any size will do. Make a cotton boll with your hands and then using a thick thread divide it into 4 sections..
Next, put some hot glue into the bottom of the cotton pod and stuff the cotton ball into it.
