  • Acrylic paints: ivory; pink
  • Papers, 12" x 12": pink toile, one sheet; multi floral, two sheets

Steps:

  1. Glue foam vase insert into papier mâché pot. Wax serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin; trim vase insert level with top of pot.
     
  2. Trace larger foam heart twice onto back of floral paper; cut out. Repeat for smaller heart on toile paper. Using small amount of glue, adhere paper hearts to both sides of foam hearts.
     
  3. Use bunched-up paper towels to randomly dab pot below rim with ivory and pink paint. Blend paints while wet until pleased with effect.
     
  4. Measure pot rim and cut strip of floral paper to cover; glue paper in place. Use glue gun to adhere small bits of all three moss colors around bottom of pot rim and heart edges, completely covering foam surface.
