Hi Everyone, it's Kathy back with another twine-y project! They say April showers bring May flowers, so here are my May flowers!
I created this for my mom as her Mother's Day present, (there's a little surprise, you'll see!) but you could make it for a teacher's gift, something nice for a friend, just about anything! I started by creating a holder for my flowers. This cute little watering can was created using a cutting file and some fun springy papers. I added some coordinating twine in Lilac, Cantaloupe and Honeydew to the handle.
Next, I created my flowers using my flower looms and some Honeydew, Blossom, Cantaloupe, Buttercream and Lilac Twine.
Now, here's the surprise. My mom is a painter, and I bought her a bunch of new paint brushes as her present. I used them as the stems of my flowers. I wrapped the handles of the brushes in Honeydew twine using a couple of glue dots so that it could be removed easily, and attached the blooms to the top to cover the bristles.
And voila, I had flowers. This could be done using pencils, candy sticks, etc. It's a fun and pretty way to package a little something! Thanks for stopping by today!
