Instructions

  1. Purchase bunches of silk or plastic dogwood branches. You’ll use these to create the branches for your arrangement.
  2. Trace the patterns provided for the dogwood flowers on to a ½” thick STYROFOAM™ sheet. Notice that there are two sizes.
  3. Paint the flowers Light Pink.
  4. At the ends of each petal, paint each notch Toffee.
  5. Punch a small hole in the middle of the blossom with the end of a #1 round brush.
  6. Pull most of the blossoms off the purchased stems (make sure to keep the stamens); leave some on for color. Here, we chose white dogwoods to add some contrast to the pink flowers we painted.
  7. Push the flower stem from the branch through the back of the hole in the flower and insert it in the stamen. You can apply a small amount of glue if you like. Continue to put flowers along the branches.
  8. To support the branches, you may need to attach 1/8” dowels painted Toffee and wire them to the branches. ®™ Trademark of the Dow Chemical Company (“Dow”) or an affiliated company of Dow.
