I had this old decorative flower pot that I thought of tossing, but it ended up making the move to our new home a few months ago. I altered it a little bit by spray painting the base with a light coat of cream spray paint (it was a mossy green before).
I then rolled lots of flowers out of paper from Echo Park called Life Is Good with the Rolled Flower Dies and glued them onto this 6 inch foam ball and added a few pearl pins into the center of several of the flowers. I then pushed the ball of flowers onto a stick that I had wrapped some green ribbon around and then finished it off with a bow and button. Here is a closer look at the flowers. Wouldn't this make a fab Mother's Day Present??
Alright!! Who is ready for a giveaway?!? I have three sets of Echo Park 6x6 papers to give away along with three spools of the new glimmer twine from The Twinery.
