Flower Power

Using what you have to create art is my kind of challenge. 
Having a lot of odd things lying around your house does help!
I have a hard time passing up wood that is ready for some paint.  4 pieces of wood $2.00.

Felt scrapes, yo yos, buttons and broken earrings.
Free rulers. (I might have taken more than my share….shhhhhhh)
Pockets from a shirt I no longer wear.

Fabric scrapes and burlap.  If you don’t love to sew, glue that fabric together!

I woke up one morning and sat straight up in the bed and said, “butterflies made out of zippers and fabric”!!!  My husband looked a little scared.
Pom Pom stash from Mamaw Ruth.

Fun funky flowers from stuff laying around the house!

    Oh, to have your imagination! Though I suspect my hubs would doubt my sanity if I suddenly sat up and talked about butterflies, zippers and fabrics, LOL. They are adorable. I can't pass us wood either and when hubs was stronger, neither could he. Ikea's “As Is” aka treasure room, had a big bundle of finished pine, like one piece to assemble a full hutch was missing for $6 so naturally I grabbed it. I think it's almost all still in the basement. but long story.
