Project Instructions

Step: 1

For Each Arrangement


Step: 2

Measure and cut foam into a 3-inch square with serrated knife.


Step: 3

Place pieces of reindeer moss on paper towel.


Step: 4

Place foam square on a piece of foil. Remove lid from Fast Grab glue bottle and squeeze a puddle of glue on top of foam square. Use craft stick to spread glue over sides and top of foam, leaving a thin even coat. Pick out a piece of moss, position onto side of foam then press to secure. Repeat until entire square is covered. Set aside to dry for 10 minutes then press down moss to further set.


Step: 5

Tie ribbon around sides of covered foam square then tie a knot to one side. Trim ends as shown.


Step: 6

Trim twigs to desired length for arrangement then press into back corner of arrangement as shown.


Step: 7

Use pencil to draw a simple flower pattern onto cardstock and cut out for template. Trace flowers onto back of cardstock paper then cut out. Note: We used four or five flowers per arrangement.


Step: 8

Cut off a section from desired color of tissue and layer several together. Cut out a circle about the size of a quarter, cutting through all layers.


Step: 9

Squeeze a puddle of Fast Grab onto foil. To create center of flowers, take a single round of tissue, find center then dip center into glue. Press onto center of cut flower on right side then slightly crumple tissue. Glue another round right next to it then add several more. Repeat with all flowers and let dry.


Step: 10

Hard boil and dye egg to desired color. Make a nest in moss then place egg where shown. It can be glued in place if needed.


Step: 11

Slightly bend petals of flowers forward then add a dot of Fast Grab to center back. Press where desired on twigs and next to egg. Let dry.


Tips

Use photo as a guide and follow manufacturer’s instructions for all products used.

A die cut paper punch will make flowers quickly.

Remove pine needles and excess materials from moss before starting.
