We paint them and the middle in a golden color with the help of an aerosol paint. Painting any product is best done always outdoors, not indoors. Next, we collect the flower, for this we glue each petal on the core from the underside of the product. Let's start the decor. We decorate the flower with various beads of gold color in the core. Petals are finished using silver beads, which can be glued or sewed. Ready flower is fastened with glue on a simple thin bezel.
