Are you ready for spring as much as I am?! I have had fun getting started on some spring custom orders as well as stuff for my Etsy shop! I want to share this sweetly simple arrangement I made for my home with mostly things I had.
I am first to admit I have a slight obsession with moss. I don't know...I love it. I found these crazy cool moss sheets at JoAnns. I was going to be a really good blogger friend and remember the exact name, etc. so you could find it if you wanted. BUT...I didn't. Sorry. (But I will find it and update the post ASAP.) Anyway, it came as a 24x24 inch sheet. It is moss attached to a nylon backing. This makes it really easy to cut into shapes and attach to whatever you'd like. They even say you can reuse. I quite like it!
I decided to wrap it around a sturdy cardboard box I had. I wanted a moss container, so why not use something FREE and cover it? I just measured, cut and secured with hot glue.
Next, I filled 'er with some foam and started adding in my flowers. I grouped together 3 sets of 3 little tulips and arranged them in my foam. Then I added some Queen Anne's Lace Flowers as a filler. I wanted this packed in pretty thick, so I kept adding until I got the look I wanted. I had all these tulips left over from another project and my grandma gave me the QA's. So that means F R E E. :) We like that right?
Once, I got all the QA's Lace in I decided I wanted my Tulips to pop out a bit higher. So, I removed them and simply added a longer stem (I used the stems I cut off of my QA's Lace) with floral tape, and placed them back in.
For the finishing touch I put in a small tie of ribbon on one of the corners. This was a fun little project which included very little money or time and it's feeling warmer already!! ;)
