Instructions

  1. Pin the cutout template shapes to the foam sheet.
  2. Cut out shapes as instructed on package using the Styro-cutter Plus.
  3. Paint the foam shapes and bases with foam friendly spray paints. Acrylic paints could also be used.  Allow to dry thoroughly before proceeding to Step 4!
  4. Helpful Hint: Use spray paint in well-ventilated area. Two light coats are preferable to one heavy coat. Using light coats allows for more effective and complete coverage!
  5. Attach shape to base with 2 double ended wooden picks. Apply StyroGlue to wood picks to create a secure attachment. Cut Permanent Flowers to appropriate length and insert into base. Add Ribbon to flower base by using a wood pick to insert the ribbon into the base, looping it in and out of the arrangement and inserting into the foam as you go.

Design Trick: Creating several small arrangements for a large table, buffet or mantel uses the Breakaway Centerpiece technique. Allowing for smaller pieces to be woven placed or distributed in smaller areas throughout a table-scape. This technique is extremely helpful when a large quantity of food or place settings may be needed on a table.
