I don’t do flowers much. Not that I don’t like them (because I do!). I just don’t feel like I have the ‘knack’. But of course I’m always BUYING silk flowers that catch my eye when I’m at the craft store. They pile up in a basket in the back room until one day I finally pull them out and DO SOMETHING with them. Usually something VERY simple. Here’s yesterday’s foray into putting together some floral accents for the store:
Artificial rosehips tucked around a grapevine wreath. This was originally a rosehips SWAG that ‘got beat up’ traveling to the spring shows. So I took it apart, cut out the ‘owies’ and reused the good stuff. Even had enough left to do another small wreath:
This next one I used three ‘mixed picks’ and one candle ring (cut in two):
Very simple pink peony wreath made from two bunches, cut apart and attached individually:
Gerbera bouquet made from two bunches, again just cut apart; and tied together with some pretty ribbon:
More often thatn not, THIS is how I end up using the florals I buy! Just tuck them into a basket!
