Now let me share with you my project....a Spring Flower Decor! Because of the colors, I was trying to get it to not look "Fall". I wanted to give it a Spring look. So here is my process:

Step 1: Paint the base color, inside and out

Step 2: Sponge paint at least 2 colors over the black

Step 3: Add cording or rope, beginning at the bottom

Step 4: If you have vertical "cracks" like I had, fill in the cracks
by gluing on some flat cording. (Optional)

Step 5: Add more orange cord to hide the ends of yellow cord

Step 6: Now add small cord on top of orange cord (Again, optional)

Step 7: Add orange cord on top edge of rim and yellow cord
on top of the cords on the base

Step 8: Add floral foam to the inside

Step 9: Add Sheet Moss

Step 10: Begin adding greenery and your floral

NOTE: To add to my mixed media Home Decor, I crocheted orange "slices" and
added them to the bottom of the flower pot
I hope that you enjoyed my project and that it gave you some inspiration! And be sure to join us by going to the current challenge tab and clicking the InLinkz button! Thank you for stopping by!
