Spring Flowers in Repurposed Metal Containers5:00:00 AM
As I sit here on a snow day in March watching
the snow pile up on the foot of snow we already have...
I'm ready for Spring!
And since there are no flowers to be seen outside,
I've decided to bring Spring inside by creating
some flower arrangements in unexpected vases.
A while back I showed you how I transformed some
old metal pockets by giving them a shiny new coat of paint...
Today I'm filling them with flowers for a burst of Spring.
I cut a styrofoam ball in quarters and hot glued one of
the pieces into the bottom of this metal pocket.
I cut lengths of faux flower stems
and arranged them in the pocket. I covered the stems
and the edges with a little sphagnum moss as filler.
And I didn't stop there...
Vintage coffee pots and tea pots were also filled
with beautiful faux flowers. The small bouquets
they sell at Michael's look almost like the real thing.
Vintage metal pots are inexpensive and available
at local thrift stores.
