    • #2 round brush
    • #8 flat brush
    • silk flowers
    • painter's or masking tape
    • white Christmas lights
    • round clock
    • 5/8" wooden dowel rod
    • cosmetic foam wedge
    • floral foam blocks
    • E6000 Glue
    • lamp shade
    • glass plate
    • teapot



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Use tape to mark lines on the lamp shade. Paint alternating sections with Deep Turquoise and Turquoise Waters using a 1" flat brush. Once dried, apply a second coat. Remove tape.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Paint plate in Turquoise Waters using a cosmetic sponge. Allow paint to dry completely between coats.
    4. Using a cosmetic sponge and #2 round brush, paint clock in Flamingo.
    5. Using cosmetic sponge, paint teapot Orange Sherbet. Use a #8 flat brush that to add stripes of Turquoise Waters, Flamingo, and Cocoa Bean.
    6. Fill the teapot with floral foam.
    7. Instruction #5
    8. Place the clock upside down in the opening of the teapot and glue it into place using E6000 according to packaging instructions. Cut a dowel rod (paint in Flamingo) to glue behind the clock, like a tripod leg, to keep the clock from falling backwards.
    9. Instruction #6
    10. Insert floral stems into the foam behind the clock. This will help hide the dowel rod and add whimsy to the piece. Arrange flowers as desired.
    11. Instruction #7
    12. Glue the lamp shade upside down to the plate to create a hat, using E6000. Glue the hat to the three legs of the clock using same glue.
    13. Optional: Tape battery operated string lights inside the lampshade.
