When it comes to buying faux floral stems, it seems the options are to settle for plastic-y looking stems or pay absurd prices like $40 per stem! Mary from At Home on the Bay found a way around the dilemma by gluing the blooms from inexpensive craft store stems onto tree branches for a much more realistic look. Mary is so right when she says, “The sticks add that natural element that is missing from the plastic stems.”
Do you love flowers and greenery but have a black thumb? Morena from Morena’s Corner created a lovely floral wall cone to help usher spring into her home – and guess what? It requires no watering thanks to the use of a Styrofoam cone and faux flowers. The Styrofoam makes for a super lightweight “planter” that’s simple to hang on the wall. You get the look of fresh flowers for spring without the upkeep!
This time of year I simply can’t get enough flowers. However, as much I love the look and scent of fresh flowers, I can’t justify spending lots of money on something that will end up in the garbage in a few days. DeDe from Designed Décor offers a budget-friendly solution with her tissue paper cherry blossoms. DeDe created her blooms from tissue paper and then hot glued them onto branches. It is amazing how real they look!
