The weather is getting nice, the windows can be opened to air out the house, flowers are starting to bloom...I love spring! Everything starts to feel so fresh.
Yesterday I made a couple of really quick projects to help freshen up the house. I picked up all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby and used a bunch of glue sticks and went to town!
I picked out 3 of these sprigs (on sale) from the floral department along with 2 foam discs to help hold them in the vase. The Vase was found in the spring department (also on sale).
Just stack the discs in the bottom. They had adhesive squares to help hold them in place. To fill up the space between them and the vase I stuffed some of the paper they wrapped the vase in. I didn't want it to wobble.
The last step was to cover the discs with sheet moss and glue it in to place. Easy enough!
For the second project, I made a moss topiary. I have been wanting to make one of these for a long time. Let me tell you...it was so fast and easy! You can make your own or buy the topiary. It is a foam ball on a down stuck down in a pot-looking foam shape. Fits perfectly in a pot.
I chose the easy way!
This is how it looks in the kitchen. I might make one on the other side as well. Haven't decided yet. (sorry, there is not a good way to photograph the kitchen. It's just a bit dark)
First I painted the terrecotta pot so it could dry while I glued on all the moss. Then I started piecing the moss on. I glued the biggest piece on the top and wrapped it around. To fill in the rest of the ball, just take pieces and fit them in.
add some moss to the bottom and you're done! You could paint or stain the dowl, but you don't need to.
While walking around I found this little chalkboard frame. It was just too cute to pass up. I used my coupon for it. There are other chevron pieces there as well. I heart chevron! ...and chalkboards. I heart chalkboards!...and grey and yellow. I heart grey and yellow!...and metal accent.....oh, you get the point.
Have a great week!
