INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Use tape to mark lines on the lamp shade. Paint alternating sections with Deep Turquoise and Turquoise Waters using a 1" flat brush. Once dried, apply a second coat. Remove tape.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint plate in Turquoise Waters using a cosmetic sponge. Allow paint to dry completely between coats.
  3. Using a cosmetic sponge and #2 round brush, paint clock in Flamingo.
  4. Using cosmetic sponge, paint teapot Orange Sherbet. Use a #8 flat brush that to add stripes of Turquoise Waters, Flamingo, and Cocoa Bean.
  5. Fill the teapot with floral foam.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Place the clock upside down in the opening of the teapot and glue it into place using E6000 according to packaging instructions. Cut a dowel rod (paint in Flamingo) to glue behind the clock, like a tripod leg, to keep the clock from falling backwards.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Insert floral stems into the foam behind the clock. This will help hide the dowel rod and add whimsy to the piece. Arrange flowers as desired.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Glue the lamp shade upside down to the plate to create a hat, using E6000. Glue the hat to the three legs of the clock using same glue.
  9. Optional: Tape battery operated string lights inside the lampshade.
