Florists Review Magazine tip of the week

June 8, 2015 
Florists Review Magazine         tip of the Week

Patriotic backdrop

img2With Flag Day this Saturday and the Fourth of July in a little less than a month, now is the perfect time to show off your shop’s patriotic spirit and the gorgeous red, white and blue creations your designers can offer.

A large piece of canvas or cotton can quickly be transformed into a rustic-looking flag that is a striking backdrop for your designs.

Use a roller brush to paint red stripes on the fabric, and cut out cardboard stars to use as stencils – paint over them when rolling the blue section to leave the white stars. Blend the colors to create the weatherworn look by using an almost dry roller brush with just a bit of blue paint. To finish, burn the fabric edges slightly with a lighter. 

Unsure how to view the class schedule or how to sign up for a me at: I will be glad to answer any question at: 913-708-2988 thanks! Christina Burton-Fox AIFD
