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

  • 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.
