How to Make

  1. Paint the wooden dowel and polystyrene ball with acrylic paint in a colour to complement the chosen papers.
  2. Using Design Space™, die cut flowers from the chosen papers and vellum: each flower should have two layers.
    Tip! Take care when removing the flowers from the mat as they are delicate: use the spatula.
  3. Die cut a border from the faux silk ribbon long enough to go around the pail.
  4. Three quarters fill the pail with dry foam oasis.
  5. Carefully push the end of the wooden dowel into the bottom centre of the polystyrene ball. Push the other end of the dowel into the oasis: it may need to be trimmed to the required length.
  6. Shape the flowers carefully using the edge of the scraper tool. Combine the flowers into layers and pin them into the polystyrene ball until it is completely covered.
  7. Attach the ribbon border around the bottom of the pail using double sided tape.
  8. Tie organza ribbon around the pail and wooden dowel.
