i put away my spring decorations,
and decided it was time for summer.
i learned how to make paper flowers when betsy (friend and younglives leader) taught our younglives girls a few weeks ago.
i needed a refresher, so i looked to a few of
the great tutorials out there in blogland.
some didn’t turn out well. they went into the recycle bin.
all of the decent flowers went on green fuzzy pipe cleaner “stems”
and then into my mason jar collection.
i made 3 different sizes for 3 displays
on a bookcase and 2 end tables.
the photo effect used is “1960s” on picnik.
they were fairly quick and easy to make, and cost almost nothing.
i think they make my living room come alive
with bright colors and fluffy blooms.
are you ready for summer?

  4. Good job! love that you used them in a vase like that. I always see the big pom-poms at parties.
    Love this idea!

  5. I don’t know what’s going on with my comments. It’s embarrassing because I’m really not a comment idiot. I’m experienced for goodness sakes! lol I’ll try this one more time.

    I love the flowers! lol (big buildup for such a small comment. promise to be better next time. )
