I'm back! I can't believe I haven’t posted since last week and no, I have not been on vacation. The truth is that when the weather is warm I tend to spend more time outside in the garden and less time inside on the computer (a good thing I think).
If you’re familiar with East Coast summers you know that once the humidity hits, working outside is not enjoyable, so while it's still bearable, I’ve been outside rolling the mulch (LOL). According to the local weather forecast it seems our hot-humid dog days of summer are here so I now have more time to get back to blogging.
While we are not taking any official summer vacations this year we are doing some weekend getaways and next weekend we will be going to the beach. Keeping within this mindset I decided my front door needed something different, something beachy.
I found a little basket at the thrifts store and turned it into a welcoming decoration with a beach theme. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and as always…Enjoy!
Supplies: Silk flower, Starfish, Floral Foam, Floral Wire, Ribbon, Glue Gun and the Basket...
I started by gluing the floral foam to the bottom of the basket.
I then separated the leaves from the flowers and attached them to floral wire. This is so I have more control over their placement in the arrangement.
Then I started the arrangement by starting with the yellow flowers, then the turquoise flowers, then the blue flowers. The filled in with the leaves as needed.
To add the starfish to the arrangement I first hot glued them to flower wire...
...and then, the Bow:
And here is the finished piece hanging on it new home!
Thanks for visiting,
