Decorating my Farmhouse Truck
I love my red farmhouse truck, but it’s sat on my shelf, undecorated since I brought her home!
So, to get started, I didn’t want to glue my foam block in the bed of my metal truck so I used velcro command-style strips instead.
I wasn’t sure if it would work ok, but it did!
Next I grabbed my floral wire cutters and started cutting the greenery in individual pieces.
Now, my truck centerpiece ended up being pretty big, but if you choose you can snip the greenery so the stems are smaller and make a smaller arrangement.
Once I had these mostly snipped apart I started arranging the different florals in the foam.
Now my foam was still partially peeking through once I had all my greenery in place, but I have some decorative Valentine picks and left over Christmas picks to add to my truck centerpiece that will add more filler.
I am not a bow maker, but I am learning and I have some pretty leftover ribbon for my truck centerpiece.
Make sure to check out my video below to see how I made my simple bow, simple but easy!
I attached my bow to one of my decorative red and white Christmas picks with a wire and then used that to anchor my bow in my centerpiece.
The final touch, I found in the miniature doll section at Hobby Lobby a cute wreath and hot glued this on to the front of the truck.
That is is!
I really enjoy and plan to make a new arrangement for Easter too and what’s nice, most of these supplies can be saved and reused!
