Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Apply Natural Brown duct tape to the pot, starting from the bottom edge of top rim going vertically down and fold excess under the bottom of pot. Continue to apply until covered.
  • 2
    Cut 23 inch pieces of both ribbons. Apply FABRIC-TAC to the gingham ribbon and attach to the Yellow ribbon along the middle. Hot glue both ribbons to the rim of the pot. Cut a 30 inch piece of gingham ribbon and tie into a bow. Glue to rim of pot as the center front. Trim ends. Glue a 12 mm Yellow rhinestone to center of bow.
  • 3
    Trim around Styrofoam disc to fit midway into pot (about 2 inch deep).
  • 4
    Cut 12 inch pieces of Kelly Green mesh ribbon. Cut a V into the ends to create points. Fold in half along the length of the piece. Fold at center widthwise. Place t-pin in fold and pin into Styrofoam disc in pot for grass. Continue until Styrofoam disc is covered.
  • 5
    To make the big flower, cut 1-1/4 yards of both Lavender and Yellow mesh ribbon. Layer the Yellow on top of the Lavender, matching one of the edges together. Using paddle wire, weave through the matched edge at 1 inch intervals. Slide the mesh ribbons towards the center of the wire to create gathers for the flower. Once tightly gathered, twist wire to secure.
  • 6
    Cut a 26 inch piece of Pink mesh tubing and create five loops. Put the loops through the center of the flower and use the remaining paddle wire from the flower to attach the loops.
  • 7
    To make the two smaller flowers, cut 1-1/4 yards of both Pink and Turquoise mesh ribbons. Using paddle wire, weave through the edge at 1/2 inch intervals. Slide the mesh towards the center of wire to create gathers for flower. Once tightly gathered, twist wire to secure.
  • 8
    Cut a 26 inch piece of Purple mesh tubing for Pink flower and a 26 inch piece of Yellow mesh tubing for Turquoise flower. Follow step 7 for attaching to centers of flowers.
  • 9
    To create stems, use wire cutters to cut a 15 inch piece of dowel. Divide the remaining piece of the dowel in half.
  • 10
    Stick dowel through Lime Green mesh tubing and apply hot glue to the end of the dowel. After a few seconds, pinch mesh tubing to close. Cut the other end to match the length of the dowel and close the same way. Repeat this method for other two dowel stem pieces.
  • 11
    Attach the long stem to the big flower and the shorter stems to the small flowers. Twist remaining paddle wire tightly around stems and trim excess.
  • 12
    Cut a 26 inch piece of Kelly Green mesh ribbon. Overlap the ends to form a loop. Stick a piece of cloth wire in and out through the top edge and then taking one end of the wire and continuing to do the same on the other edge. Tighten the wire onto ribbon to create a cinch in the center. Wrap the excess around the middle of the big flower stem and twist to secure. Trim excess.
  • 13
    Cut two pieces of Kelly Green mesh ribbon that are 22 inch each and repeat step 12 for small flowers.
  • 14
    Once the flowers are complete, apply hot glue to the end of the stem and push into the Styrofoam disc in the pot.
