Plaster Of Paris Flowers

Create faux porcelain flowers with this easy technique using Dollar Store silk flowers.
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $10.00 Difficulty: Easy
Cut the stems of the flowers to about 2-3 inches long.
Mix the plaster of paris and dip the flower into the mixture. Dip a few of the leaves, too.
Let the excess plaster of paris drip off of the flower.
Lay the flowers on wax paper and allow to dry. Once dry, the flowers may be painted if you want them to be another color.
Cut the stem as close to the flower as possible.
Use E6000 to glue the flowers and leaves to any surface.
They're a beautiful touch added to simple canisters.
Make lots of flowers! You'll want to put them on everything!

    have you tried adding dye to the plaster instead of painting them afterwards?

    I love this idea. Do you think these flowers could be used outdoors on a cementary plot?

      I've not tried them outside, Btshy, so I'm not sure how they'd hold up. I would test them out at home and see. You could try making them with Rocktite, which is a cement that you mix. It's pretty thin when you mix it so I think it would work.
