As we are on the cusp of April and the seasons are changing I thought it would be fun to make something that could easily bring the brightness and cheer of the outdoors into your home – even if (like me) you don’t have much of a green thumb.
While I was not trying for realism, it was nice to have that effect. Especially as the paper is metallic, so scoring/bending it is even more effective than if it were matte – it helps to catch the light.
I used Aleene’s Tacky Glue to attach each piece, using an awareness of visual balance to help me determine where to add more color or foliage. While it may have taken a while to do all the work up front, it took a matter of minutes to bring it all together.
For finishing touches, I used a white paint pen by Molotow to add highlights in the middle of each flower and to signify some folds in the flower petals.
You could easily punch a hole in the top to thread some twine for hanging. I decided to put mine on a narrow hallway closet and used some strong tape to adhere it.
