Craspedias are easily my most favored flower. They were the main flower at our wedding and I couldn't imagine not having them flourish our special day. When I was looking to order Craspedias, I couldn't find fake ones ANYwhere online, and they weren't in any flower shops near our home town. I ended up ordering them from a lovely company (if you want to stress yourself before your wedding, order mail in flowers..oy). Thankfully, they arrived right on time and beautiful as could be. However, sometimes I really just want a vase of them without having to order a large bulk. This is where this sweet DIY comes in...
Supplies: Styrofoam balls, mustard yellow paint, floral stems
Pantry Supplies: Scissors/or wire cutters, paint brush.
Take the Styrofoam and stick the floral stems in securely. Paint them yellow and let them dry! Add something pretty, such as feathers, and place them in a mason jar. This DIY makes a pretty statement center piece, perfect for spring.
It's projects such as this that give me the substantial hope and desire that spring will come early this time around. We've had sweet teasers of 60 degrees a few times this week, and I've thoroughly enjoyed it. Warm weather is a guaranteed dose of creativity and inspiration. Once those sunny days hit, I can't help but feel this itch inside me to create. What sparks your creative streak?
Hope your week is turning into all things lovely.
