Plaster-dipped flowers, painted silver and added to an old frame creates a beautiful gift for any occasion.
Last week I shared with you how to dip fake flowers in plaster, here’s the first project I came up with for my hardened flowers. In the tutorial I try and give some tips and tricks to dipping the flowers (and not just creating a big plaster mess).
What you’ll need to make the frame:
- Wooden Frame – (I got this one at the flea market for $1… I LOVE the flea Market)
- Plaster dipped flowers
- Hot Glue
- Latex based paint
Step 1. Paint the frame and your flowers the color you decide. I chose a metallic silver paint. I also used an angled paint brush it to get into the little grooves, not leaving any white spots.
Tip 1. You can also spray paint them, I tried this as well, and it worked beautifully.
Step 2. Once the paint is dry I hot glued rhinestones onto the center of the flowers. I know the paint is already shinny, but I wanted that extra bit of bling.
Step 3. Hot glue the flowers onto the frame. When hot-gluing the flowers, I tried to fill the little gaps under the petals with glue so they were not as fragile, which worked really well. They still look really delicate, but will not damage as easy.
Done! This was really easy… once the flowers were dipped. And you’d never know it only cost only a little bit to make. Perfect Mother’s Day Gift.
