This month the Designer Crafts Connection Blog Hop features designs with Sticky Sticks! Sticky Sticks are a craft stick with an instant and strong adhesive strip at one end which adheres to a multitude of surfaces. I was inspired by the fields of brilliant sunflowers and created a large flower to hang on my kitchen's brick wall.

You will need: 1 pkg of Sticky Sticks; Lemon Yellow, Tangerine Rit Dye; Gold, Yellow Kunin Felt; Black buttons by Button Galore; 3" Smooth foam ball; Westcott Brand scissors and Fabri-tac glue by Beacon.

Step 1: Dye the sticks to the adhesive line. Brush or dip sticks in Lemon Yellow dye and brush on Tangerine along edges, reverse colors, mix colors, have fun! Set aside to dry.

Step 2: Cut Yellow felt piece in half lengthwise. Fold each piece in half lengthwise and cut slits from center fold to 1/4" from edges.

Step 3: Cut a 6" circle from Gold felt. Cut a 3" circle for back. Cut Smooth foam ball in half. Center ball round side down on felt circle. Smooth and glue felt edges to bottom of foam ball.

Step 4: Glue black buttons to cover gold foam ball. Begin at edge and glue folded yellow strips around foam ball half. Glue second strip overlapping first piece.

Step 5: Turn ball over and glue a 3" circle of Gold felt to flat side. Fasten adhesive ends of sticks around the circle. Add ribbon or cord loop and hang! Enjoy many more crafty ideas with Sticky Sticks, just click on the DCC button in the sidebar! Enjoy!
