This craft can be a lot of fun and very complementing to a rooms décor. You can make simple country kitchen designs or something more contemporary and modern.
The first step is to decide whether or not you frame or shadow box is the color you like. If the background of your framing is not, you can spray paint it. Remove the frame and glass before painting, unless you want to paint your frame as well. If this is a step you need to take let it dry for at least 24 hours after you have painted the background.
Next you will want to prepare your flowers and greenery by cutting the lengths and pieces you will want to use. Also if you are using a frame instead of a shadow box you will want to remove the glass, you will not use the glass for this project because usually the flowers and leaves make this a 3D picture. (This is also a good time to plug in your hot glue gun so it is ready for the next step.)
Now arrange your cut pieces on your background the way you like. Use a small amount of tape to secure your arrangement. Do not secure tapes firmly, just use it to lightly tack items into place. After you have tacked everything into place with the tape pick up the background and hold it upright to ensure everything looks good and nothing falls or no additional pieces of tape are needed. Remember you are using a very small amount of tape and only lightly tacking things into place.
The final step is to use a small amount of hot glue in place of the tape. After you have glued everything into place let your art dry for 20 minutes and then hold upright once again to ensure everything is in place and secured properly.
Finally, reassemble frame or shadow box and display your art.
Easy and fun. Great idea !
