Today’s frugal project: flower embellishments. I found some ugly white flowers at Dollar Tree. I also found a couple “picks”, the things you put into flower arrangements, usually plastic and often tacky.
I took the flowers home and sprayed them with a quick spritz of pink spray paint. I let them dry.
After ripping them all apart, so the petals were all separated from the stems, I began making small flowers from the larger petals. I cut them and hot glued them together to make buds and flowers, I added some of the plastic pieces from the picks for the centers. These are perfect for art journal or scrapbook pages.
For three bucks I have a mountain of petals with which to create many, many embellishments.
