I'm ready for spring and warmer weather!!! I decided since the weather was not cooperating, I would add some spring into my house!!! I made some pretty petals, and it only cost me $1.75. Yep, you heard me correctly $1.75.
Take a look at my Pretty Petals! Do ya want to know how I made these? It's a super easy peasy project!
Here is the list of items you will need:
3 sticks from your yard, and if the weather has been as windy as it has been in NC, then you should not have a problem finding any.
3 aluminum soda cans. I got mine at work
1 bucket. Michael's has them for $1.00
3 candles. Wal-Mart has them for .25 each
Chalk Board paint. Only if you want to paint your bucket.
3 thumb tacks
I put chalk board paint on my bucket.
Cut your soda cans a little more than half way down. I used my gloves, so I would not cut my fingers.
I sanded the edges just a bit.
I cut the can to make the petals. I didn't measure where to cut. I just cut.
Fold the aluminum down.
I tired to put a nail from the soda can to the stick, but it didn't work. I decided to use my Gorilla Glue to hold the can to the stick. Wait a while for the glue to dry. This is a good time to put a second coat of chalk board paint on your bucket.
After I glued the stick to the petals, I started to think about how I was going to get the candle to stay on the petals (since the nail did not work for me). I didn't want to glue the candles to the petals, I decided to call it a night and think about it.
The next day at work the idea hit me. I was going to use thumb tacks!
I used my glue gun to attach the tacks.
I cut the floral foam to fit into the bucket and put my sticks in the foam.
I used some moss to cover up the foam and wrote spring on my chalk board!
Now I have some spring flowers in my house! So take that Mr. Weather!
All of this beauty cost me $1.75.
I decided to put my flowers on my mantel.
