Ribbon and Button Flower Arrangement

These flowers are made from ribbon, buttons and a few beads!  I love the way it turned out!  I found the tutorial on how to make the ribbon flowers over at Hope Studios where the writer there has over a hundred tutorials on all kinds of things.  You will have lots of  fun over there, I promise! 

I improvised on some of my flowers, but that is the beauty of these kinds of crafts.  You can make it personal and add or takeaway what you want.  As for the holder, it's just a wooden planter I bought at Michaels over a year ago for a dollar.  I had painted it red because my room colors used to be black, white and red.  Now the colors in my room are black, white and that blue color on the walls.  So I covered up my red paint with 3 layers of white acryllic paint.  I hot glued 2 styrofoam squares together and then hotglued some moss on the outside of  my square.  It popped right into the container and wherever there were blank spots I just pushed more moss through the holes.  Then I pushed my flowers down in where I wanted them!  So easy and quick.  The ribbon flowers take the most time but it does depend on if you hotglue everything or sew most of it.  I did half and half.  Hotgluing is really the way to go in my opinion. 

It gives my room a little extra something special and I am enjoying looking at them whenever I go to my dresser.  Have fun and make something for yourself that you can enjoy!
