Faux Metal Flower

 

What You'll Need:

Metal Petals Large Template

Metal Petals Small Template

Let's Do This!

STEP 1:

A) Print out the template. You can choose between the large and small flowers. B) Cut out the template pieces for whichever flower you'd like to make.

STEP 2:

A) Trace the template pieces onto the poster board. You will need 12 large petals, 9 medium petals, 7 small petals, 7 extra-small petals, and a center piece.

B) Cut out the petals from the poster board.

STEP 3:

A) Lightly brush gold metallic paint onto the edges and down the center of each petal. Let dry.

B) Use a pencil to add a curl to the backside of the petals. This will add dimension to the finished flower. 

STEP 4:

A) Trace a plate onto a piece of cardboard. We recommend a plate with an approximate diameter of 8".

B) Cut out the circle.

C) Find the center of the circle and mark it with a pencil.

STEP 5:

A) Begin adhering the large petals to the cardboard circle using hot glue. The points of each petal should meet at the center mark on the cardboard.

STEP 6:

A) Hot glue the medium petals to the flower.

STEP 7:

A) Hot glue the small petals to the flower.

STEP 8:

A) Hot glue the extra-small petals to the flower.

STEP 9:

A) Hot glue the center piece to the flower.
