Flour Flower Mesh Cup

I wanted to spruce up my plain looking mesh cup so I dipped some foliage from my garden in a flour/water paste to preserve their shape, let them dry, then did a bit of painting and gluing to put this all together. I'm so happy with it, it's pretty enough to go on my rather girly makeup table.


Total Time: 1 hour (plus overnight drying time)

Yield: 1 cup



  1. Mix the flour and water together in a bowl until it's a smooth paste.
  2. Dip your foliage into the paste. Make sure they're covered well.
  3. Lay the dipped foliage on some wax paper and let dry over night.
  4. The next day they will be super stiff. You can use them as is, re-dip them in more paste and dry for another day, or paint them. I added a bit of white paint to mine where some colour was seeping through.
  5. Spray paint the mesh cup and let dry.
  6. Heat up your hot glue gun and begin sticking the foliage onto the mesh cup.
  7. It will all dry very quickly as hot glue sets up fast.
  8. Fill and enjoy!

Well, I must say, you're a bit more than artistically inclined. Max Factor would love this, and I think it kinda cute.

(You know you bad, friend girl)
