DIY Parchment Petal Pots

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!

Materials
Tea Tins Tall (set of three)
Eco Green Acrylic Paint (White)
Parchment Petals
Almanac Journaling Notes from Prima Marketing
Seam Binding Ribbon
Branches of various heights

Instructions

  1. Paint the branches with acrylic paint. Spray paint is a good alternative as well.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Insert the branches into the tins, stuffing them with white tissue paper to fill the excess spaces.
  5. 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.
