- In a well-ventilated, newspaper-covered area, lightly spray inside and outside of the double pot with several coats of clear finish matte spray. (This preserves the rust areas and even enhances the color of the rust.) Let dry.
- Use foam cutter to trim foam bricks to fit into pots. Apply quick dry dual-tip glue between bricks and inside edge of the pot, to hold. (Note: Keep the level of bricks low enough to allow rusty inside edges to show.) Tear pieces of floral moss large enough to cover and place over foam bricks.
- Make arrangements by pushing pieces of German Statice into foam brick. Use scissors to trim any double-layered statice areas, to create an open, airy feeling and to allow rusty inside edges to show.
- For flowers, use a ruler to measure and tear paper into approximately 4″ squares, making three blue and two brown squares. Tear-off corners to make them somewhat round. Carefully scrunch one paper to wrinkle and then flatten. Make a fist and push the center of the square into the top of your fist to gather it into a flower shape. Press a glue spot into the paper flower center. Pinch and manipulate paper to form a flower. Press glue spot to the back of the button and press into the center of the flower. Repeat to make four additional flowers.
- Use 3D glue spots to add paper flowers to statice in the arrangement.
