To prepare the flowers for these crafts begin by cutting the stems of your fake flowers using scissors.
Then, spread the blooms out and apply a light coat of gold spray paint to each stem. Layer the paint multiple times until you achieve the desired golden effect.
Candle and Flower Centerpiece
1. Glue Larger Blooms to Candlestick
Glue a couple of the larger painted blooms onto the side of a thin candlestick. Allow the glue to dry completely.
2. Create a 3D Effect
Manipulate other blooms, leaves, and stems, and hot glue them onto the candlestick, ensuring some pieces stick out for a 3D effect.
3. Add Jute Twine for Flair
For added flair and support, wrap and knot jute twine at the connecting points of the candlestick.
4. Final Touch - Overspray with Gold Paint
Give the entire candlestick a light overspray with gold paint to achieve an elegant finish.
5. Display Your Gold Floral Candlesticks
Your gold floral candlesticks are now ready to grace any table in your home with their delightful and elegant presence.
Flower Vase Ideas
1. Prepare Mid-Size Blooms
Cut the stems of your mid-size artificial blooms to match the height of a glass vase with a curved neck.
2. Glue the First Stem
Hot glue one stem near the neck of the vase, ensuring a secure attachment.
3. Add the Second Stem
Take another stem and glue it slightly lower than the first, allowing the leaves to overlap for a natural look.
4. Conceal Exposed Stems
To cover any exposed stems, cut random leaves from other stems.
Glue them directly onto the glass vase.
5. Versatility in Display
Display your gold-flowered vase according to your preference, with or without fresh flowers.
Flower Design Bowl
1. Gather Small Blooms and a Glass Vase
For this DIY you will need small artificial blooms and a small round glass vase.
2. Apply Glue to Small Blooms
Apply glue to the stems of the small blooms and carefully attach them to the rim of the glass vase.
3. Enhance with Natural Texture
For natural texture and to conceal any exposed stems, fill the vase with green moss. This not only adds visual interest but also hides the inner workings of your DIY project.
4. Choose Your Display Location
Place your new gold-rimmed vase on a bookshelf, side table, or fireplace mantle.
