SUPPLIES:1 canvas (size is totally up to you)
several silk floral stems (again, the amount is for you to determine)
white spray paint
trusty glue gun
I picked out just six floral stems, timing it with a 50% off sale, of course! I purposely chose light colored flowers to allow for easy coverage with the white spray paint. I was also able to get my canvasses on sale, yep...sold in a 2-pack. So now I have another canvas stashed away for a future project.
The thing that probably took me the longest, was playing with the flowers to find the arrangement that I liked the best. I wanted a somewhat asymmetrical look, so I left more blank canvas on the right hand side.
I chose to have some of the tips of the flowers extend above the canvas, but didn't want the stems to fall below, so I clipped the bottoms with a pair of wire cutters.
I turned, bent and glued the stems so they would really stand out from the canvas in spots, while other areas are glued flat to the canvas.
I am totally thrilled with how it turned out, and it looks great in my office.
