The first thing I did was paint all of the flowers different colors. I wanted lots of color. When they were dry I added a little detail, sprayed them with acrylic sealer and then hot glued a button on each one. The buttons were an after thought, so they aren't on this picture.
The next thing I did was cut the fabric into strips and wound it around the foam wreath, hot gluing it in place as I was winding it.
