17 Popsicle Sticks (the narrow ones)

  1. Begin by painting the canvas with two coats of Tangerine paint.  Allow to dry.

  2. Paint 15 Popsicle sticks with Cayman Blue paint and 2 sticks with Citrus Green.  Allow to dry.

  3. Cut one of the green sticks in half.  Position the green sticks to look like a flower stem at the base of the canvas.  Glue in place.

  4. Working with each blue stick, cut 1/3 of the stick off.  You should have one long section of stick and one shorter section. Just above the stem, position 15 of the longer sticks in a circle pattern.  Glue to secure.  Overlap the shorter sticks over the longer sticks.  Glue in place.

  5. Glue the gathered ribbon around the inside of the flower.  This will cover up the ends of the sticks.  Glue a jumbo button in the center.

  6. Dip the spounder brush into the white paint.  Tap off any excess paint and press onto the canvas creating polka-dots.  Allow to dry.

  7. Glue the narrow ribbon around the outer edge of the canvas.
