The process of creating something personal with a color palette that matches our décor always leaves a satisfied feeling. This way, the artwork is displayed and enjoyed, rather than tucked away in the back of a closet (we’ve all been there).
Flower embellishments are useful and versatile, so instead of using them on a paper crafting project, our Shoppe Manager, Vanessa, gave them a three-dimensional spin and used them to adorn old branches. We have seen many inspiring images of similar projects on Pinterest and couldn’t wait to give this idea a whirl!
- Paint the branches with acrylic paint. Spray paint is a good alternative as well.
- Use a few ready-to-alter tins (or even old recycled cans) for the vases. Lightly sand the tins and give them a coat of white paint.
- Alter the tins using the journaling notes. Attach the notes to the tins with adhesive, and tie a piece of coordinating seam binding ribbon around the center of the tins.
- Insert the branches into the tins, stuffing them with white tissue paper to fill the excess spaces.
- Use glue dots to secure the parchment petals onto the branches. Display on a desk or a window sill for a bit of shabby chic floral décor.
