Step 1: What You'll Need
- Branches (from the yard or craft store)
- Silk flowers
- Wire cutters
- Bamboo skewer
- Water-based craft paint
- Preval Sprayer (Home Depot)
- Hot glue gun
- Glue sticks
Step 2: Prepare the Preval Sprayer
Add 1 oz. of paint and 1.5 oz. of water to the jar. Cap, shake and attach the spray can. Spray the branches evenly, making sure to coat all angles.
(Watch the video to see how it's done!)
Step 3: Make Those Branches Bloom
Next, use wire cutters or scissors to cut the silk flowers off the branches.
When the branches dry, use a hot glue gun and a wooden skewer to attach the flowers. And, to avoid burning your fingers, use the skewer to press the flowers into the hot glue.
This project is blooming with possibilities!
Mix and match flower and branch colors to make it your own.
