2 dollar flower arrangements

  Hello my favorite bloggy friends!!

  First let me say, I am so sorry for being MIA lately, you can't even begin to imagine how busy its been getting this house into shape after the cross country move! (not to mention I have spent a considerable amount of time tanning by the lake) I have so many projects that I have been working on this week to share with you, but in order to keep my sanity, i'm going to try to take it 1 day at a time!! I am going to start with these awesome 2 dollar flower arrangements I made with some leftover things I had around the house, and dollar items!!

 You will need:
  Fake flowers (these fake carnations were only 1 dollar at wal mart!)
  Decorative pots (dollar store baby!)
  Butcher paper (I used some of the extra from unpacking)
  Double sided tape, or hot glue

Start by filling the bottom of your pot with some butcher paper, like so:

Then pluck the bulbs from the fake flower arrangement you picked up, and begin hot gluing (or double sided taping) them around the rim of the pot, and into the center.

you will eventually end up with this!

cute right?!

I used these light blue tin pots, and I also used some dark blue plastic pots, and I love them both!!

a very simple little spring/summer decoration, and at 2 dollars a pop, who can resist!!

 I will be posting lots more throughout this week, I am officially back in blog action! I look forward to catching up on all of your blogs as well. Thanks for stoppin by!

  1. Social networking can help me better relationships. I also use it to trade in a few items. It seems everything is very good.

  2. Most people like to get flowers from their nearest florist shop. My advice to you is if you want to get the best flowers, Flower bouquet you need to keep your option open. Some of the best florist shops may not be near your home.

  3. I might want to thank you for the endeavors you have made in composing this article. I am trusting the same best work from you later on too.. lotus flower
