Easy spring makeover with dollar store flowersJune 12, 2014
I love decorating for Spring/Summer. The bright colors, the happy patterns, the flowers,… I love it all.
Sometimes there is a challenge on finding a way to freshen what you already have for Spring. Rather than buying completely new decor each season, it is possible to make small changes to what you already have and make it feel lighter, brighter, and more Spring-like.
First of all, let me show you my favorite decorative shelves, which are full of bright yellows and greens. The shelf holds two succulent plants – one mint and one mixed succulent. There is also a flameless candle with a series of small 3-D yellow flowers – I found the flowers at the Dollar Spot of Target. The green bottle was from Hobby Lobby. It came with a glass bird on top, but the bird is sitting on my DIY triangle shelves. The picture frame is from Ikea and I simply printed out a close-up picture of some leaves. And that milky white vase is from TJ Maxx (the Clearance Section) and I filled it with yellow artificial flowers from the dollar store.
Now let’s get to the tutorial. You know those artificial flowers at the dollar store? Well, I found a use for them that is chic and elegant. Simply pull off each of the flowers and hot glue them to plain decorative branches that are so popular in the cooler months. I’ve found them everywhere during the Winter- Walmart, Target, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, etc. They’re usually in the aisle with artificial plants/flowers.
Here is a picture of just the branches.
And here is one of the flower with the petals cut off.
And here is the finished product! Perfect Spring decoration!
