Tampon Flower Bouquet

Say “I love you” with the gift of flowers. This lovely bouquet will never wilt, and if you use scented feminine products, it will have a springtime-fresh fragrance.

“Hibiscus” flowers
  • Playtex tampons (or similar brand like Rely or Always)
  • Rit fabric dye (fuschia)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Green florist’s wire
  • Chopstick
  • Tampax tampons
  • Yellow acrylic paint
  • Scissors
  • Spray-on acrylic sealant
Instructions

Cut florist’s wire into 3-foot lengths. Double in half, and fold around a chopstick or the end of a paintbrush. Hold ends of wire and twist strands together, leaving a loop at one end.


Dampen tampons just enough so they unfold, then let dry. Thread the wire stems through the center of each tampon so the wire loop is on the inside of each flower. Poke the wire through the string holes when possible.


Mix 2 tablespoons of fabric dye in 1 quart of very hot water. Dip in tampons for a few minutes till desired color is achieved. Squeeze out excess moisture and hang to dry. Cut off strings.


Spray Tampax tampons with acrylic sealant. Let dry.


Paint Tampax tampons yellow. Let dry. Cut off strings.

Press wire loops in center of flowers flat. Use hot glue gun to glue yellow “stamens” to flowers.
