Editorial Guidelines Updated on January 20, 2023 Share Tweet Pin Email When Valentine's Day comes around each year, flowers are top of mind—they're typically our go-to gift on the day of love. Instead of shopping for a bouquet of blooms this February 14, consider this floral craft idea from La Petite Fête. She displayed this eye-grabbing piece of floral wall art at a Galentine's Day party, but it works just as well as a present for your best friends or partner, too. Start with a painted canvas (pick up an inexpensive one from your local home goods store) and bring it to life with silk flowers and greenery. Or, fully commit to the DIY: Sketch a simple vase outline on a plain white canvas and then "fill" your vessel with faux buds. What You'll Need Materials Silk flowers and greenery X-acto knife Scissors Wire cutters Tape Hot glue gun Floral vase canvas art Instructions Using an X-acto knife, cut a slit in the canvas at the top of the vase's opening. (This will be used to secure a few stems, producing the illusion of an arrangement within the vase.) Slip a few of the largest bloom stems through the vase slit opening, filling in the gaps with smaller blooms and leaves. (Tip: You can manipulate the wire stems and gently bend flower heads forward to create more natural movement.) When layout is final, hot glue flowers onto the canvas to secure, using wire cutters to trim stems as needed. Tape the stems that are slipped through the vase down to the backside of the canvas to hold them in place. Continue adding more flowers and leaves to your arrangement, gluing flower heads directly onto the canvas as needed. Cover the slit opening with leaves or flowers. Mount to wall for display.
