Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick project I did Monday amidst the whirlwind of things I was trying to get done! I created a simple flower arrangement for two ladies that are special to me that recently lost their husband/dad.
It’s definitely a sad reason for this project to be created, but the whole reason for it is to hopefully bring a bit of handmade happiness.
This arrangement is obviously customize-able, making it suitable for any occasion. I think the way mine turned out would be great for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and any sort of tender occasions.
The whole objective of this “Scrappy” project is that most of the materials were resourced from My hoard! aka “Free” haha.
I wanted to be able to afford a pretty flower arrangement, something that wouldn’t break the bank and was handmade to let the certain someones know how much they mean to me.
I’m obsessed with twine and mason jars so that’s where my Pinterest search began. I found many examples of flower arrangements in mason jars! Most of them had a sweet ribbon tied around them. So I picked out some $10 dollar roses, got a jar from my dad, used some twine, and found some crocheted lace in my grandma’s hoard! I used some hot glue to secure the ribbon and twine where I wanted them to stay.
I apologize for the poor quality of these photos, they were taken last minute as I was rushing around all day to get everything in! I went shopping out of town with my mom, went grocery shopping, made this, ran to Fed Ex… It was a crazy day! And this is a hint to the BIG post I have been referring too. *wink *wink
So here it is!
I loved the soft antiqued pink of the roses and I think the decoration turned out perfect. it is simple, but gives the jar some texture and interest.
Have you tried the app yet?
Are there any projects you have scrapped together in a pinch?
Definitely thinking about continuing adding to this to make a “Scrappy Series”!
Have a wonderful Wednesday folks!
