Floral Photo Wall Hangings

I bought two Styrofoam discs recently at a dollar store in different sizes and then covered them with CTMH Just Blooms paper flowers after seeing this done at an art store several years ago. I randomly mixed the sizes and shapes of flowers, along with sparingly mixing in some yellow flowers too.  To glue the flowers down I used Liquid Glass (my ever ready go to glue for dimensional projects).   I added varied sizes of pearls onto the flowers. 
I wrapped the outer edges of the foam with a double layer of yellow tulle.  To adhere the photos I used CTMH's foam tape in long outlining strips around the photos.  On a couple of photos I wanted to give added height, so I layered a second layer of foam tape directly onto the 1st layer.  

I am thrilled with the overall outcome of these pieces. They perfectly showcase my niece Charlie's photos from her 2nd and 3rd birthday shoots...and my Mom will love them on her wall.
