The first step is to lay all four of the wood slats down and glue four popsicle sticks to the back to make your surface. If you choose, you can use a ready made surface to save you time.
Your surface should look like the one below once you have done the previous step.
Next, I used the color black currant to paint my surface. I used a chip brush for this as I didn’t want 100% coverage.
As that dried, I took my ribbon and stacked each design together and cut them in the shape of flower petals. I ended up not using the color on the bottom right. All three of the ribbons I used came from Hobby Lobby.
I then arranged my flower petals somewhat in the shape of a flower. For the center of the flower I used rope twine and simply wrapped it around in circles until all of the inside edges of my flower petals(ribbon) were covered.
Now we have a our cute little flower. I wanted to put something in the center to hide my hot glue from where I started my jute rope so I painted a half wood bead with the same black currant color and glued that in the center. You can find the half wood beads like I used right HERE using my affiliate link.
I just love how this turned out! The perfect piece of decor for Spring and even Summer if you please!
Hello friends! I was at Target awhile back and found these wooden floral stems and this surface both in the “Dollar Spot” or “Bullseyes Playground.” I knew right away that these would make a cute project!
For this project, you will need:
*Surface of choice-mine is from Target
*Wood flower stems-Target
*Hot glue gun/gorilla glue
*Ribbon of choice for bow if desired
I prefer to use this along with hot glue when doing these type of projects. The hot glue is obviously going to be the quickest, and the gorilla glue is for longevity. You can also use E6000 in place of the gorilla glue.
First, I laid my flowers out and arranged them the way I wanted and then I used my hot glue and just a dab of the gorilla glue to adhere them to my surface. Just a heads up…the gorilla glue does expand as it dries so just a dab with do the job!
I have the light pink floral stem left and decided I wanted to put that right in the center of the bouquet. I simply broke the stem off so it wouldn’t hang over the edge and then glued it right on top of the dark pink flower’s stem.
Now it’s time for a bow of course! This is my go to ribbon for lots of projects. You can find this at Hobby Lobby.
For the bow, I took my ribbon and rolled it end over end 5-6 times. The length of my ribbon stack was approximately 6 inches. I then tied it in the center with jute twine and the “fluffed” my bow.
How stinkin’ cute! I added a cute little button to finish off the bow.
I love projects like this! Cute, budget friendly, and easy!!! I hope this inspires you to get crafty and give this a try!
