Create a floral display using one Dollar Tree metal tabletop decoration

Hello everyone! I hope that you are all doing well. Today we're creating a floral display using a metal tabletop decoration from Dollar Tree. If you don't have a Dollar Tree store, no worries, you can find these metal decorations at any craft store. It may not be the exact one, but that is okay. If you're ready we will begin creating our floral display.

Materials needed

One metal tabletop decoration- Dollar Tree
Napkins- Any design will do, and you will only need one
Faux floral- Michaels 
Hot glue
Paint- I'm using white chalk paint
Mod Podge
One pencil for tracing

Start with taking your decorative napkin, and laying it on top of your metal decoration. Using a pencil trace an outline around your napkin. Once you have traced the shape of your metal decoration onto your napkin, take your scissors, and cut out the shape.

Next, if your napkin is two-ply, remove the bottom layer of your napkin. Set your napkin aside.

Take your metal tabletop decoration, and apply around two coats of paint. I decided to use white chalk paint because applying chalk paint to metal surfaces seems to adhere much better, and it takes fewer coats of paint. Allow the paint to dry between coats. I used my heat gun to help with drying. 

Now you are ready to apply your mod podge over the painted surface on your metal decoration.  Using a paintbrush, apply a thin layer of your mod podge.

After you have applied your mod podge, take your napkin and apply it over the mod podge. Be sure after you apply it on top of your mod podge you smooth out any lines and wrinkles. It is fine if you are not able to completely smooth them out. I used my heat gun to help with drying. 

Now you can apply your mod podge on top of your napkin. And after applying it, give it some time to fully dry. You can also use a heat gun, or blow dryer to help with drying. 

Next, take your floral snips, and begin to cut your floral. You can go at any length. You just want to be able to make it look as though your flowers are overflowing from the top of your decoration. 

Once you have cut your floral, use some hot glue to attach your floral to the top side of the metal decoration. 

Begin to wrap your twine around the top section of your metal decoration. You want to be sure to cover any of the flower stems with your twine. Wrap your twine around several times, until it has covered the stems of your flowers. Once you have wrapped your twine around the top section, cut any remaining twine off, and glue down the end of your twine.

This last step is optional, but if you choose you can apply some paint to the bottom wood stand. I applied some of my white chalk paint, and I think it turned out wonderful. 

Your floral display is now complete. I love how simple this craft was, and it looks beautiful displayed in any room. Let me know if you decide to create your very own. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll see you soon!
