Instructions

Step 1

 Spray-paint wood biscuits for flowers
Spray-paint wooden biscuits and plugs solid colors of bright pink, light pink, blue, and white; let dry.

Step 2

 Arrange wood biscuits into flowers, and hot-glue
If desired, place biscuits on waxed paper to protect the table's surface. Arrange six biscuits of the same color in a flower shape. Add a drop of hot glue to the center of the flower, making sure all the inside tips of the biscuit have glue on them. Let the glue dry and peel off the waxed paper. Turn the flower over and repeat.

Step 3

 Hot-glue wooden plug to wood flower
Spray a new coat of paint on the front of the flower; let dry. Spray-paint the back of the flower with the same color as the front, let dry. Lightly spray the center and ends of the flower in a contrasting color (we paired bright pink with light pink, and blue with white). Once dry, hot-glue a wooden plug in a third color.

Step 4

Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 with the remaining biscuits and plugs. Set aside three flowers.

Step 5

 Attach clothespin and wood dowel to flower
Spray-paint clothespins and 3/16-inch dowels green; let dry. Hot-glue a clothespin to the back of each flower with the opening up, making sure you can't see it from the front. Glue a dowel to back of the clothespin.

Step 6

 Glue wood biscuit flowers to flower box
Hot-glue three flowers without attached clothespins and dowels to the front of the window box. Insert green floral foam inside the box and arrange biscuit flowers. Use clothespins as photo/card holders.
