rustic floral shadow box

The weather’s turning cooler, so bring the blooms indoors with our Rustic Floral Shadow Box! This décor DIY is so easy—just arrange your favorite fall flowers, then hot glue them in place. Our instructions below have all the details you need to succeed!
Step 1

First, open up your shadow box and set aside the pane of glass.

TIP: You can (carefully!) discard the glass, leaving an open frame, or replace it when you’re done building your floral arrangement.

Step 2
Now, lay the fabric-covered frame backing on your working surface. It’s time to start arranging your flowers!
Step 3

Use your floral cutters to snip small sections of flowers and greenery from your floral stems. Place small, delicate blossoms and leaves onto the frame backing to create a miniature arrangement. Begin at one bottom corner and place your floral pieces so that they reach upward towards the center and top opposite corner of the frame backing.

TIP: As you work, make sure to keep your flowers and leaves within the edges of the frame backing so they’ll fit into the shadow box when you’re done. Don’t be afraid to move pieces around!

Step 4
Hooray, all your pieces are in place! Or, are they? Here’s a great trick to make sure: Take a photo with your phone, then look at the photo to decide whether you’re finished. Want to tweak your creation a bit more? That’s ok, too!
Step 5
Happy with your arrangement? That means you’re ready to make it official! Carefully take apart your arrangement. Starting from the bottom, rebuild it again. Add just a small dab of hot glue for each one and fasten each piece to the fabric backing.
Step 6
Once your arrangement is secure, replace the backing inside the shadow box frame, either with or without the glass pane.
