um. more fun with silk flowers.

Okay, I knew this was going to happen.  As soon as I decorated that deer head garland thing with silk flowers, it was clear: a monster had been created.  Which is why I decided to bring this ceramic owl out of storage and give it the old silk flower treatment.  It went from this:


To this!


Arrggghhhh, it's so damn sweet with those lil spring flowers.  

And here it is, in its natural habitat:






Stay warm out there. :)

fun with silk flowers

I never realized silk flowers could be so pretty.  I have two projects that I just completed using them––a somewhat small little thing shown here, and another larger and more awesome project that I'll post soon.

Remember my old faux deer head?   First, I painted it white and gold, and then wrapped a pretty garland around its neck (not a great picture, I know):


But today I bought a bunch of silk flowers for another project and had some left over, so I decided to see what they would look like on the old deer head (largely inspired by this Target Hacks DIY on Domino):







So pretty, right?  Now I kind of want to put silk flowers on everything––though I feel like this is one of those instances where moderation is key.

More to come!
