Bring a still life to real life with this three-dimensional display of beautiful blooms.
- Floral vase canvas art (Pictured: White Vase with Bright Flowers by Sheila Gold Ornate Frameen, 24 by 24 inches, $42
- Silk flowers and greenery
- X-acto knife
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun
Using X-acto knife, cut a slit in the canvas at the top of the vase’s opening. (This will be used to secure a few stems, producing the illusion of an arrangment within the vase.)
Slip a few of the largest bloom stems through the vase slit opening, filling in the gaps with smaller blooms and leaves. (Tip: You can manipulate the wire stems and gently bend flower heads forward to create more natural movement.) When layout is final, hot glue flowers onto the canvas to secure, using wire cutters to trim stems as needed.
Tape the stems that are slipped through the vase down to the backside of the canvas to hold them in place.
Continue adding more flowers and leaves to your arrangement, gluing flower heads directly onto the canvas as needed.
5. Cover the slit opening with leaves or flowers. Mount to wall for display. Isn’t this gorgeous~~~
