I’ve been looking for the perfect pictures to hang above our family room sofa for over a year. And now that we’re going to be painting our fireplace and redecorating our bookshelves (thanks to you!), I decided it was finally time to do something about the dead space above the couch.
And since I never did find the perfect pictures, I decided to make them instead.
Next I cut my ribbon and ric rac “stems”. To adhere everything to the canvas, I put Mod Podge on the entire canvas. Then I used a craft brush to paint my ribbons with Elmer’s glue.
I glued my stems to the canvas. Next I Mod Podged the backs of my flowers, placed them on top of the stems, and went over the entire flower (stem too!) with another coat of Mod Podge.
I repeated this with all three canvases, varying the height of my flowers.
Once they were dry, I chose a few pieces of vintage costume jewelry and glued them onto the centers of some of the flowers.
