flower shadow box art

This spring, instead of planting a flower garden, hang one on your wall! This one’s made with gorgeous pink roses, eucalyptus leaves, ferns and the sweetest little mini succulents. It’s a lovely way to bring the season indoors...let us show you how!
Step 1
Open up your shadow box and remove the glass. You can (carefully) discard the glass, you won’t need it for this project. 
Step 2
Use your heavy duty snips to cut apart the bouquet of flowers. You’ll want to separate the flowers from the greenery. 
Step 3
Begin arranging your greenery inside the shadow box, but don’t attach anything yet! Just start placing the pieces you snipped (eucalyptus, ferns, etc.) at one of the bottom corners of the box. Build your arrangement outward, so that it extends up toward the two top corners.
 
TIP: Take this time to figure out what kind of arrangement works best and don’t be afraid to move pieces around. Keep going until you have things just the way you like them.
Step 4
Now it’s time for flowers! Add the blossoms from your bouquet, varying the light and dark pinks as you lay them down. Again, you’ll work from the bottom corner upwards and out towards the top corners. 
Step 5
Finally, you’ll add pops of color and interest by placing mini succulents within the box. Concentrate near one bottom corner or have fun making this floral art in the way you think looks best.
 
TIP: Take a photo with your phone and look at the photo to decide whether you’re finished. Maybe you want to tweak your creation a bit more -- that’s ok!
Step 6
Once you’re happy with your arrangement, you’re ready to make it official! Use a hot glue gun to attach each piece to the box’s interior, with just a small dab of glue for each one, and you’re all done!
