Whenever we are home, it's only for a very short time.
Now that spring is right around the corner, every time I walk into Trader Joe's, all the beautiful flowers in the front are just begging to come home with me. I would snatch up a whole bunch if it weren't for the fact that I know they'd just die once we left home again.
So... the solution: make your own!
I didn't get any pictures of the first stage: forming the clay but basically I just got one of those cheap blocks of oven bake clay at Michaels and formed my flowers, baked them, and attached them to a floral thick wire as a stem, and painted them.
I actually changed the color of the flowers once, but hey, you can do that with fake flowers.
They're definitely not as beautiful as fresh flowers, but the good part? They won't die while I'm gone, and I still have some happy color to come home to! :)
