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