Flower Filled Boho Medallion

68,855 Views
I had a black medallion on our wall in our piano room. Recently we gave our son the baby grand. I was excited to make the old piano room into the new craft room. I had outgrown the old craft room which was also my office. My theme is Boho with lots of flowers!!!!!
I wanted to decorate this with lots of silk flowers. I bought the nicer ones from Michael's (yay 40% off) and some from Dollar Tree. I don't have a picture of the bunches but I had a lot!
Time: 2 Hours Cost: $40 Difficulty: Easy
I pulled off all the heads laying them all out so I could form some kind of color palette.
I bought one large flower and the rest were regular size.
I then began with ribbon I had. I made groups of 6 pieces all about 36 inches long. My plan was to attach the ribbon to the medallion at various levels. I wanted to be able to pull out ribbon as I worked or even to glue the flowers to the ribbon.
Holding the ribbon like this at halfway I formed a loop and wrapping that around different sections of the metal I pulled the loose ribbon through creating a knot. I think it's called a larkshead knot. I didn't remove the metal from the wall. It was very easy working with it right on the wall.
I used all the different colors of thin ribbon I had then I started adding my flowers . I started with my largest flower at the top right and continued around. I have no pictures of the process as I was busy hot gluing (and burning my fingers) and placing flowers to fill the entire medallion even using the ribbon to glue flowers to and also gluing flowers to each other. After 2 hours I Finished!! I used a sticky roller to remove all the hot glue strings! A sticky roller also works well to dust off the blooms when needed.
I'm very happy with my new Boho addition to my craft room!

    You can blow off the dust with a can of air or hair dryer on cool. Nice job.
