Instructions

Painting the Terracotta Pots

  • Using a medium sized paintbrush, cover the surface of the pot in Everlasting.
  • To get a white washed effect on the pot, use a clean cloth to wipe off the excess paint immediately after the first coat of paint.
  • Leave to dry fully before proceeding with remaining steps.

Assembling the Potted Felt Pansies

  • Place the styrofoam ball inside the pot.
  • Glue the foliage stems to the styrofoam ball having the leaves hang over the side of the pot.
  • Begin glueing the larger felt pansies directly to the styrofoam ball alternating the colors.
  • Cut a few pieces of floral wire measuring 2-3” long. Fold the wire in half and twist the ends.
  • Glue the looped end of the wire to the back side of a few smaller felt pansies.
  • Insert the wire ends into the styrofoam ball having the pansy stick up and over the other glued pansies to add some dimension.
  • Have a couple of smaller felt pansies hanging off the side of the pot.
