What You'll Need:
- Tissue paper
- 1" foam brush
- Smooth rocks
- Mod Podge
- Green paint
- Thin sticks
- E-6000 glue (available at most crafts stores)
- Green rafia
- Small D-rings
What to Do:
1. Create the flowers by cutting approximately ½"-tall petal shapes freehand, leaving the tissue paper in its original fold so that you get multiple petals with one cut. Cut a few of each color for a variety of shapes and sizes.
2. Using a foam brush, coat one side of a rock with a thin layer of Mod Podge; arrange petals on top while it’s still wet. Spread another layer of Mod Podge over the tissue paper. Let everything dry.
3. Paint a stick green for the stem. Once dry, attach to the rock with E-6000 glue.
4. Create leaves by tying a piece of green raffia to the stick.
5. If hanging, glue a small D-ring to the back of the rock with E-6000 glue. Allow the glue to dry completely before displaying.
