Hello East Coast Creative Readers!
I’m so excited to be guest posting over here today, because I live very close to Jess & Monica! We haven’t met in “real life” yet but I’m sure one day we will 🙂
I just got married in February and have been trying to repurpose a few of the items I DIYed for my big day so I don’t waste them! I had a ton of these fabric flowers left over:
My hubby and I recently bought our first house and so I’ve been working on collecting/making some home decor accents. I thought I could use the silver flowers from the pew cones for up in our bedroom, which is eventually getting a grey/silver color scheme.
I got this bucket from the “as-is” section of IKEA for $1.50. There was nothing wrong with it…I think they just aren’t selling them anymore!
I spray painted it silver with leftover spray paint from another wedding project
I poured in some glass marbles (that were actually left-overs from my bridal shower!) and then stuck in my fabric flowers (this post has a full tutorial on how to make them if you are interested)
Here’s the finished product:
Yay! I think it turned out so cute, and all it cost me was the $1.50 for the bucket!
I put my little flower bucket up in our bedroom on our IKEA TV-holder-thing-a-ma-whatsit. Yes, that is the technical term.
Other side has a picture of us from our big day 🙂
And there are the flowers!
Slowly our house is becoming more decorated….and slowly I’m using up some of my wedding decor too 🙂
Thanks so much to Jess and Monica for letting me guest post! Please stop by my blog sometime to say hi, I’d love to meet you! 🙂
Thank YOU, Rebecca! You can’t beat a cute project with that price tag!
