About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.

~~ Tutorial: Pretty pot of roses! ~~

Posted by Ania On Wednesday, May 02, 2012


There’s no denying. Prima makes the most gorgeous flowers out there. And with a ball of styrofoam, a stick of wood (the kind you use for BBQ and stuff), a little oasis (the green thingie you stick flowers into…what’s it called in English….oasis too?), a small pot and hot glue gun….you’ll whip up such a project in no time. And no, it’s not difficult at all….even I managed to create one :)


Start with the pot: paint it white, add glitter to the top border and let dry. Adhere ribbon around the edge.


Stick the wooden stick to the ball, secure with some adhesive. Cut the stems of the paper-roses, keep a small snippet of the stem so it can be used to pin it into the ball. Then just dab hot glue to the bottom of the flower and stick them to the styrofoam. Keep the flowers tight.


Cut the oasis so it’ll fit the pot, poke a hole in the middle for the stick by premaking a hole, dab some hot glue into it before sticking the stick to it (I’m so eloquent today!)..finish by adding more flowers to make up the “ground” and tie some ribbons underneath the ball.
