Add personality to your front entrance this season with a fall flower DIY home decor item. The ever-popular daisy punch and coordinating stamp set make it quick to build these 3D flowers in autumn colours. I think they look pretty much like mums…what do you think?
Yes? It’s a great example of how to get more mileage out of your stamps and punches. Here, it’s only paper colour mods that totally change up the look. Compare it to the daisy on my DIY Clipboard to see the difference.
All you need is an inexpensive canvas frame from the dollar store for this project. This one measures 6” square. While it’s easy to get a rectangular shape, this shape is a bit more unexpected.
I first stamped my letters in Early Espresso ink to ensure I had enough space for them. TIP: Be careful when stamping onto the canvas as there isn’t any sturdy backing on it. To compensate, I held an acrylic block underneath then stamped my letter. I learned this after I stamped my first letter lol! When I started to colour in my “F” with a marker (see it at the top?) I thought I actually liked it better where you could see the canvas texture. So I left the rest of the letters alone!
To tie all the colours together, I sponged Old Olive and Early Espresso ink around the outside edges of the frame with a Stampin’ Sponge. It really added to the overall effect and softened the bright white.
For ease, I used my Versamark pad to give tone-on-tone colour for my flower and leaf details. Using four colours of cardstock for my flowers, I was really happy with the coordination. Here are some TIPS to make them three dimensional.
- Stamp and punch each flower two times per colour of cardstock
- Use your bone folder to shape the petals but running it lightly underneath the petal
- Lay one petal over the top of the second, offsetting slightly so you see the petal underneath
- Use Soft Suede ink on a sponge dauber to lightly swirl ink into the middle of the flower
- Stamp, punch out then glue leaf behind a petal (you can shape these too if you like)
- Overlap petals when gluing down to canvas so they are clustered together
- Attach a large gold faceted gem AFTER adhering to your canvas
Here’s everything you need to recreate a fall flower DIY home decor piece like this yourself.
