Excuse the terrible iphone pics here. I wanted to share a little project I recently did. I love color, but like to keep furniture and wall colors fairly neutral. I recently wanted something with a little pop of color to replace some photos in our entry while we try to sell our house. I also tried to go with something versatile that I'll use again when we move.
Supplies I used: a stick from the woods (free), a round styrofoam ball (can't remember the cost so I'll estimate $3), flowers (I used $12 worth), a small pot ($3 clearance at Michaels), some green styrofoam I already had (free), and a little moss from the dollar store ($1).
I took the flowers off the stems and then pushed them into the styrofoam a little to make the hole. Then I filled the hole with hot glue and put the flower in. I just continued that until all the ball except the bottom was covered. I put the stick in the bottom and glued around the stick. After that dried, I covered any remaining space around the ball and filled in any holes I saw.
