Spring is here which means it’s time for us to start creating some flowers. I was going through my craft supplies and came across some wooden items from Home Depot. We have used these wooden items in the past but after looking at them I think we can create a quick and easy flower with them.
You can find this 9 inch wooden leg and this wooden ball finial in Home Depot.
Some other supplies that I’ll be using are:
1. Hot glue
2. Drill and drill bit
3. Two 9”x12” sheets of white felt
5. Americana acrylic paint by DecoArt ( colors Marigold and Green Leaf)
6. Lace colored chalky finish paint by DecoArt
7. Strip of fabric from a Five Below rug
8. Elmers glue ( optional)
9. Gold glitter ( optional)
The first step is to remove the screw from the wooden leg. Use pliers and unscrew the screw.
Once you have the screw removed from the wooden leg you’ll then screw the round wooden finial into the hole of the leg.
Screw them tight together.
The next step is to mark your dots where you’ll be drilling holes for the petals to your flower. I marked my dots about a half inch apart. Find the center of the round wooden finial and go straight across.
Once you have the spots marked you’ll then drill into each spot.
The next step is to create your petals to the flower. I created a pattern for the size petal that I wanted and I then traced 23 petals.
You will want to cut all 23 petals out and then set them aside.
I painted the round finial with the Marigold colored paint.
I then painted the remaining wood with the Green Leaf colored paint.
I added a small dab of hot glue to each hole and then inserted the petals into each hole.
You can use a small tool or a kabob stick to push the petal into the hole.
I drilled a few more holes across the center.
I added some Elmer’s glue onto the front of the finial and then sprinkled on some gold glitter.
This is an optional step but I love the look of the glitter.
I tied a strip of fabric from one of my Five Below rugs around the base to soften the green wood.
This flower is so easy to make and you can create it any color that you want. I hope you’ll get creative and give this a try.
