Over the years I bought quite a lot of silk flowers. I usually had flowers in each rooms, in big and small vases. Each vase was only for 1 type of flower. After moving to new place, I changed my decorating style leaning toward clean and minimal decor. I don’t want many small stuffs in a room, just enough quantity of big statement pieces. So I gathered most of my silk flowers and arranged them in one big copper planter I found at Ballard Design outlet.
It’s a big planter to fill so I bought extra bushes and leaves. I have no rule for the arrangement but I like the wild flowers kind of bouquet, random and fun.
- Put wire inside the planter. I used wood pieces to stabilize and rise the wire.
2. Cut the flower stems to desired length. If you are not sure what is the best length, you might fold the stems and see how it looks first. You can always shorten it later.
3. I know it looks like a mess at the beginning, just keep going, once it gets more flowers to fill the spaces it will begin to look better 🙂
Hope it inspires you!
I made these coasters for housewarming gift, I don’t have the crochet pattern for this project though .. sorry. What I did was making 4 chains, sl st together to make a circle then sc along the chains. In the inner round I did 2 sc at the same space, when the circle got bigger I reduced the count. I added sc at the same space whenever the edge began to curl, otherwise 1 sc for each space. The good news is I have the pattern for the flower edge 🙂 It needs 4 chains space for each : 1 sc, 1dc 1tc at the same space, 1tc, 1dc 1tc at the same space , repeat.
Finally, guest bedroom project is finished, actually I finished it last month but hadn’t had chance to update the post for a while.
