Oooohhh…I’m so excited for today’s post. I’ve been chomping at the bit to bring you this project and finally the day is here! It’s a DIY Hydrangea centerpiece made from paint chips. And isn’t it so adorable?
These would be so great as an alternative to flowers for a wedding, a dinner party or even just to keep in a dressing area like I plan to do 😉 And they’re not hard to make, you just need a little time.
Here’s what you’ll need.
Paint chips in whatever colors you choose
All purpose pins (with a white ball tip)
Martha Stewart’s Hydrangea punch (purchased at Michael’s Crafts Supply)
White spray paint
Tulle or ribbon
And here’s how to make them.
Select your paint chips.
Hand cut some flower petals.
Also use the Hydrangea punch and mix the two types of flower cuts to create a variation in petal sizes and shapes.
Take your all purpose pins.
Pierce your flower petals in the center with the all-purpose pins and pull back the petals a little like shown below.
Gather glass jar, Styrofoam balls and dowels.
Pierce Styrofoam ball with dowel. For different size flowers, cut your dowels at different lengths.
Start sticking your pierced flower petals onto the Styrofoam ball, leaving about an inch space between the flower petal and the ball so the flower petals are NOT touching the ball.
Fill in the entire Styrofoam ball with petals.
Repeat process with as many flowers as you want. Spray paint glass jar white. Let dry. Then wrap a piece of tulle or ribbon around the top base of jar. Insert flowers however you like them and presto…you have a beautiful DIY Hydrangea centerpiece made from paint chips.
Lovely, isn’t it?
