  1. Paint the vase and leave to dry. Once it has dried, cover it with a layer of varnish.
  2. While you’re waiting for the paint to dry – cut the ribbon, thread a button through onto it and tie the bow around the vase.

  4. Take two pieces of craft wire and twist one end around the middle of the flower to make the stems.
