Oh boy, I had to dust the cobwebs from my blog! I know, it's been a looong time since I've been here but not going anywhere, promise! I've been putting all my energy and moola into my gift basket business and also, an etsy page, both coming very soon! Stay tuned for that! Anyway, it being Spring, my least favorite time of year (for personal reasons), I needed some cheering up and the only solution is color!
What you will need:
Artificial Flowers from Dollartree (I purchased 3)
Recycled Jars/Alcohol Bottles
Acrylic Paint or Food Coloring
Clean bottles and remove labels w/hot soapy water. Match acrylic paint to match the petals of flowers. The best paint to use is cheap paint! Try not to use the pricey stuff, it's all I had =(
Fill bottles with water. Apply paint to brush and dab before adding to bottle. Too much paint can cause globs in the water! Place lid and shake until paint has mostly dissolved. Remove lid and allow colored water to settle. Cut flowers to desired lengths and arrange to matching bottles like so.
