I have been seeing all kinds of flowers on Pinterest that are made with Plaster of Paris and I knew I had to give it a try. These flowers will be amazing to add to a wreath or just place throughout your home for decoration. I’m very excited to give this a try and I hope they will be a great flower to add to my trees. This project seems to be a messy one so I decided to give it a try outside.
The supplies you will need are:
1. Plaster of Paris
2. Artificial flowers
3. Measuring cup
5. Wax paper or parchment paper
7. Spoon or spatula
You will want a tray or piece of cardboard to place your wax paper onto. You will be mixing 2 parts of Plaster of Paris to one part water.
I find that it works better if you add a little extra water. If it is too thick it is harder to get your whole flower to cover evenly.
You will dip your flower in the mixture. I bought my flowers from the Dollar Tree.
I bought a variety of flowers. Most of my flowers required 2 dips. I let them dry after the first dip and then dipped for a second time.
The flowers that were bright in color took at least 2 dips to cover.
I decided to leave a few of my flowers with the color showing through.
I took white paint and lightly painted all my flowers.
You can add glitter to the centers of your flowers. This was a messy project but well worth it. I’m very excited to add a few of these flowers to my wreaths and trees.
I hope you will all give this a try. I found a lot of flowers in the Dollar Tree that worked perfect for this project.
