I was browsing Michael's today for something specific and of course I was totally bombarded by other ideas for my baby girl's room. I have the color palette chosen and the paints chosen, so now the little detailing matters have been consuming my thoughts.
I came across a small handheld bouquet for $4.99. There were a bunch of gerbera colors to choose from and if they had orange - I would have gotten it, but instead I got to improvise! I grabbed the green gerberas and a stock of orange flowers (40% off of $9.99). Here was my project:
To replace a few gerberas with the orange flowers by using my wire cutters and sticking the new flowers into the oasis ball. I removed the unflattering lighter green flowers and kept the bright green ones. Then my thoughts expanded when I pulled out some pink ribbon to wrap around the base...
I created double loops of ribbon to insert through the bouquet to give a splash of pink.
Create the loops
Place the stick with the wire end up, in the middle of the loop base. Begin to wrap the wire around the ribbon, holding the whole thing tightly to secure the wrap.
Your finished loops
Holding the bouquet firmly, insert the stick into the oasis foam in the desires areas. I added 6 double ribbon accents to the arrangement.
Using a hot glue gun, I attached more of the pink ribbon around the base of flower stems to cover the arrangement's unsightly floral tape.
And there is the first of many projects completed for my baby girl's room!
