Another cheapie bouquet from the grocery store. I made this awhile ago, but thought it would be pretty for St. Patrick’s Day, if you’re a holiday-decorating type. It’s green button mums, and a weed-type flower
whose name I don’t know called Alstromeria or Peruvian Lillies (thanks, Lisa N.!).
I chose them because they’re the same color family, but totally different textures.
First I took all the crazy leaves off the bottoms of these guys.
Then I pulled the mums apart so I could work with arranging individual flowers instead of a stalk with a bunch of different heights.
They look cool together, and I was happy with the result.
Fair warning, both flowers lasted forever and then a weird thing happened. The mums didn’t grow in water, but the weed flowers did, so at the end of the week it was a big ol’ mess. Ah well.
Then I made this tiny guy for my bedside with leftover flowers.
