C is for Chang

I've had a paper mache C in my home for some time now and haven't known what to do with it. I actually got it on clearance a while ago for $3 and thought it was a great price for such a large letter. I knew I wanted to do something with it, just couldn't put my finger on it until I remembered something I saw on pinterest a while back. But it was done with real flowers, so I decided to get some cheapy ones and improvise. 

What you need:
Paper Mache Letter
Fake Flowers
Floral Foam Bricks
Knife/X-Acto Knife

I first cut out the top of the letter and took the top off. It was really easy to do with an x-acto.

 Once you have hallowed your letter, cut the foam into a bunch of small sizes to fit into your letter. I just used a regular kitchen knife for this step.

Once you're done, start planning your color scheme, and add flowers to your liking.

I started to kind of spread the colors so I wouldn't bulk i just one spot. Then I began filling.

I went with more of a spring palette. I loved it.

And I decided it should be by my stairway. I like looking at it when I go up my stairs, and seeing it all the way from my front door. 

 It's a fun piece and brightens up my house! Hope you try it too!

Happy Wednesday!
