I need PRETTY right now. I need a fresh look, a new feeling when I walk through my house. I, I, I...I need pretty.
My new flower I am passionate about are the hydrangea. Although I have always looked at them as a traditional looking flower, the light celery green is really fresh looking so I made one out of silk and love it. It is beautiful, contemporary, and real looking. They are so easy to make and less than half the price if you could find them to purchase. Here is how you can make this arrangement yourself...
Purchase a bouquet of your favorite flowers in silk from your local crafts store, "Wonder Water" which is the material that makes the fake water, and a glass container or use your own.
Cut the stems from the bouquet so you have individual flowers and be sure you cut or pull the leaves off (this arrangement is from 2 bouquets @ $4.95 ea.)Clean your glass container thoroughly and make sure it is dryFollow the instructions on the Magic Water.Tip: The longer your stems, the larger the arrangement. Set your flowers around the rim first, then the center. Keep it simple. Trim the stems little by little until the right length to match the others. This arrangement has 8 flowers all the same size. After you have made a few, it would be fun to experiment with other more complex flowers arrangements. (I just bought out all the hydrangea's from my local super market in all the colors and making them for Mother's Day).
