This dollar store flower decorating technique is going viral (7+ projects)

Plaster of Paris is an easy-to-use hardening agent. It's commonly used in projects like paper-mache and ornamental decorations. One trend that's blowing up Pinterest is using this plaster to coat flowers and create beautiful decorative floral pieces.
