1 Comments

If you like flowers then this is the perfect piece for you. Decorate your living room wall with this framed orchid wall art. It gives a sense of peace and warmth that says welcome to my home.

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Block, 18" x 12" x 1"
  • Cream orchid stems, two
  • Silver wood-grain gift wrap
  • Floral shears or wire cutters
  • Serrated knife
  • Candle stub or paraffin
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • Thick, white craft glue

Instructions:

  1. Wax serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin. Measure and mark an 8" x 14" rectangle in center of foam block; cut out to create 2"-thick frame.
     
  2. Place frame on wrong side of wrapping paper, leaving at least 1-1/2" all around. Trace frame onto paper. Cut out paper 1-1/2" beyond traced lines, outside and inside frame edges.
     
  3. Center and glue paper to frame front and sides, wrapping excess paper around to back. Slit paper corners to foam edge and fold neatly to back of frame; glue to secure.
     
  4. Use floral shears to trim orchid stems to 2" long; insert stems at angle into inside bottom edge of frame. Spot glue stems to secure.

It's a lovely idea. One that can work with other flowers, also. But I wonder if it wouldn't be easier to buy a ready made frame. They are priced very reasonably and in many cases can be found on sale. One could either paint in any way they desire or wrap with paper just as in your example.
