  1. To make a large block, glue foam blocks together, connecting the 3 1/2″ sides. Using serrated knife, slice off all four corners of foam and discard corners. Glue foam into bottom of paint can.
  2. Plan arrangement of bushes. Space evenly and insert into foam. Bend stems into desired look.
  3. Peel paper backing from vintage label and attach to front of paint can.
