Surprise Box DIY Challenge
How fun it was to participate in a Surprise Box DIY Challenge organized by Terrie of Decorate and More with Tip. If you are coming from Sweet Southern Grace, welcome! Shae has such great style and creativity! After receiving my surprise, I was feeling like I really was a slacker! Terrie suggested a maximum of $5 and I know that Tammy from Patina and Paint with her generous surprise gift of this weathered tin pot and a bag of wooden balls. I glued several of the wooden balls to small wooden dowels. I painted the balls red and left them to dry. The weathered blue pot was going to be perfect for my project. I wedged two pieces of dry floral foam into the pot. They fit tightly and I didn’t need anything else to secure them in the pot. I began by filling my pot with artificial ivy. Often times I will cover the the floral foam with moss, but this time I knew I would be filling in the arrangement enough that the foam will not show. You could just fill this pretty pot with artificial greenery and have a nice decorative piece for your home. I have other plans, AND I want to show you how I used those wooden balls.Adding white wisteria blossoms I already had on hand help to fill out my pot.Artificial blue Dollar Tree florals begin to fill out the pot and coordinate with the blue tone of the pot. A little black paint was added to the red painted balls. What are they looking like to you? Ladybug ribbons were cut into loops and tails to add to my arrangement. Sweet little ladybugs were added to my arrangment!An arrangement of blue and white with sweet little ladybugs is ready to be displayed for summertime! It was such fun to challenge myself to create something with items sent to me, which I had not idea what they were going to be! I hope you found this to be interesting, now head on over to Jessica B. Simmons and see what she has done with her surprise box items!
