Project Instructions

Use foam paintbrush to cover canvas in the lighter paint color.

Mix the two colors together and brush back over top of canvas to shade and accent.

After the canvas is dry, pull all small magnolia flowers from the branch. Use wire cutters to cut the branch to desired length and design on canvas. If necessary, cut separate pieces and glue branches together to maintain a natural look.

Pull three white magnolia heads from magnolia bush and cut any remaining stem so that flower will lie flat.

Hot glue flower heads between branches as pictured.

Accent branches with three or four Japanese magnolia flower heads.

Tips

Choose paint colors that are lighter and darker tones of same color.
