Faux Flower Arrangement
Contributor ~ Susan Duane
Hello, I’m so happy to be here with you today! My name is Susan and I blog at Love of Home. Jemma thank you so much for having me share with your readers today! I have an easy project to share with you today, it’s one of my favorites.
I have a favorite faux tulip arrangement that I bought years ago, they look so real. I think the clincher is the "water" they are in. I love flowers but it's not always possible to have fresh flowers so this is a great alternative to fresh and it's so much cheaper to make these faux arrangements yourself. This project has been on my idea list for months! Since I'm working on decorating for Spring I thought it would be the perfect time to make it come to life.
Here's what you'll need: Faux flower stems Quick water - Here is a less expensive one on Amazon *affiliate link A vase of some sort, I used a mason jar Wire cutters Container to mix the acrylic in and a something to stir it with Directions: Cut stems to their desired length for your container. Follow the directions on the box for the quick water. Mix according to directions and pour into a clean container. Add your faux stems and let set overnight. Decorate! This project was super easy. It took me less than 30 minutes, cost me around $15. This is a bargain compared to the faux arrangements you can buy! I used the water solution to make a second one with a bunch of flowers I already had at home.
