Spring Flower Trio

TO MAKE YOUR SPRING FLOWER TRIO, YOU WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING SUPPLIES:

  • Mod podge
  • Glue gun
  • Sandpaper
  • Wooden flowers
  • Wooden spools (but you can be creative)
  • Sturdy stems – I used a chopstick and 2 straws
  • Scrapbook paper – fabric – ribbon of your choice – I usually choose 3-4 coordinating colors so I can pick and choose from those for all embellishing
  • Embellishments like buttons – flowers – jewels etc
  • Wood base for your flowers

STEPS:

1. Make your flowers out of scrapbook paper by tracing and cutting them out. It is not necessary to be precise when cutting them out because, after they have dried, you will sand them. 

Tip* If you can’t find any wood flowers, you can cut them out of cardboard. Simply make sure it’s durable and also that you cut it into three different sizes.

2. To stick your paper to the wood or cardboard, you’ll need to use mod podge. If you’re using wood flowers, sand the edges to give them a “shabby” appearance. In case you are using cardboard, you can skip this step.

3. I used coordinating paint colors to paint the backs of my flowers, but you could also use additional paper or embellishments.

4. After the flowers have been sanded and painted, add your embellishments to the center to complete the flower look. This is where you’ll layer it until you’re pleased with it. I used paper, fabric, and buttons. I just kept rearranging them until they were just right for me. I only glued the center parts down with hot glue. This gives it a whimsy appearance.

5. Because my wooden spools were empty, I used the opportunity to wrap them in the coordinating ribbon. I hot glued one end, wrapped the ribbon around it, and then glued the other end.

6. I painted the small piece of fence board that I used for the bottom white, but you can use your imagery when picking a base.

7. I measured the heights of my stems before gluing them on. Because I didn’t want to cut the chopstick, I used it first to give it some height. I did know I could cut the straws down, so I glued them in place and cut them when the height was correct.

8. I hot glued the spools in place and stuck the stems into them once I had them where I wanted them. I glued the stem in with the glue that came up through the spool. If you don’t want to cut them down right away, let the spools dry before gluing the stems in place.

9. You’re almost done, but there are a few things left to do. To add some “leaves,” I ripped my fabric and tied it to my stems.

10. Such a diy can be used for any holiday décor. Making it your own is a lot of fun.
