Don’t you love to add color to the front porch in the spring? Oh yeah, baby. That gets my juices flowing.
I started with $10 worth of real plants from the hardware store that we planted in pots we already own.
We pulled out the rest of our pots and filled them with dirt (a couple of kids always help me with these projects).
I found some old flash cards, drinking straws and twine (I ended up not using the pink) and went to work.
Of course you KNOW I used my true love, the Cricut!
Mama’s chair by the door, sitting and rocking and listening to the children play while she reads. Ahhhh…..
Walking up the front path to the door you see this…..
It’s a mix of real flowers and paper flowers.
In one pot I stuck shovels and gardening tools…..
My homage to Texas bluebonnets. They’re my all time favorite flowers. I taped the Cricut flowers to sticks we found in the yard.
Book pages form the flower centers.
I know it’s a little weird, but it was easy, fast and FREE!
I wrapped drinking straws with twine and taped the flashcards to the top. Easy breezy!
If you’re on a spending freeze like we are….don’t let that stop you from finding ways to spring up your house. I may grow some more paper flowers just for fun!
