I love being able to come over and share some of my crazy, decorating ideas with all of you!
Today I am going to talk about flowers from the grocery store!
We all see the flowers at the grocery store and sometimes we pick them up and sometimes we walk right past.
Well, I am hoping that I will inspire you to pick up those grocery store flowers and give them a little love.
The main reason that I like flowers from the grocery store is because they are cheap!
I love fresh flowers, but I can’t afford to pay a lot of money for something that will die..really fast.
So, I dress them up. I use simple things that you can pick up at the grocery store and things that you will find in your craft room.
Yes, this arrangement was made with grocery store flowers with one teeny, tiny addition that totally puts it over the top.
Yep, I said lime picks. They are super simple and are a great way to a little something to your arrangements. You could use any type of citrus fruits.. Limes, lemons, oranges.
How to make a lime picks-
1- Gather your Supplies
green striped paper straws
2- You are going to cut up your lime into pieces. You want your piece to be large enough that it will hold the skewer. I usually cut mine in 4th’s.
3- Stick your skewer into the lime through the rind
4-Slide a striped, paper straw over the skewer
5-Cut off any part of the skewer that is not covered by the straw.
6- Add to your arrangement
Simple, cheap and awesome! This is a great, inexpensive and easy idea to
pull in a pop of unexpected color.
My next tip involves washi tape! I am sucker for washi tape and I have way more than any one person should have (101 rolls)
You can make a flower frog with a roll of washi tape and a cute container.
1-Gather your supplies
Washi tape-you want to make sure that you use a thin width.
2- All you need to do is make a grid pattern over your container. Super simple!
3-Trim your sides of the tape so you can’t see it when you add the flowers.
4-Stand back and look at how pretty your 4 minute arrangement looks!
Two super simple ideas that will hopefully make you want to run to the grocery store to pick up some flowers for your house!
