I am so excited to be here introducing you to my blog dreamingincolor A blog full of affordable crafts, painted furniture and delicious recipes to name a few. My name is Deneen and I started blogging seriously three short months ago. I have met so many wonderful people here and everything has been so inspiring. One thing I love to do is inspire others and I love all of the comments I get telling me that they are going to try something I made! This project can be done for lots of occasions. What a wonderful gift to receive!
Supplies that are needed:
Several pieces of jewelry
flower like shapes in complimenting tones and colors
Green Gerber Daisy
2 inch ribbon any color
1 inch ribbon to wrap stem for nosegay
vase for flower
These can be picked up at sales for very little money if you don’t have any to use. If doing this for your mom she might have some you can use. I like looking for special pieces to put in the flower that are sentimental.
Start with a Gerber daisy. This acts as a filler behind the pins.
Paint Mod Podge to the back to stiffen petals a little.
Use 2″ ribbon in any color you prefer. Ruffle and glue with hot glue around the daisy.
When dry turn the flower right side up. Gather jewelry and begin to wrap with wire.
Use floral wire to wrap securely. All objects wrap differently. Do what works best leaving enough wire to poke through the flower petals.
Each pick will be put through petals in a circle to fill up. Don’t worry about gaps we will get to that when we are done.
Start with the outside pins and work your way in. Hot glued the one in the center.
Wrap the wires and stem with floral tape. Cut the stem to desired length. Fill gaps with loose pearls or press on pearls.
It is ok to have the petals showing through. they look like leaves. When the flower is done stick it in a vase.
Turn this into a nosegay for a dresser or vanity. Add a small strand of white beads for trim around base of pins.
Wrap the green stem with 1 inch satin ribbon and tie with a bow. Add another piece of broken jewelry to the center of the bow to finish it off.
Bend the top to lay nice on the dresser and added a Happy Mother’s Day banner for this special occasion.
Hope you enjoyed learning how to make this unique gift. I hope you visit dreamingincolor soon!
