Good Saturday morning! Ahh! Is a day to relax for you or are you busy running around? We have a few household things to take care of , but not too much on the agenda. Of course, there’s the Super Bowl tomorrow. Are you watching or is shopping calling your name? We will just be hanging out at home watching the commercials, while my husband watched the actual game. 🙂
Lauren and I kind of came up with the same type of Valentine project and we hadn’t even talked about it ahead of time. A little scary! We both used silk flowers and mounted them, hers is on a canvas and mine is on a weathered board. You can see hers here. Anyways, I had a bunch of small boards that Lauren had painted awhile ago, plus some silk flowers in my stash and decided to try and put them together.
I pulled out the flowers I wanted to use, I chose pink, and then decided on a grey board so the flowers would really stand out. I drew a heart on a piece of paper and then traced it onto the board so I would have a little bit of an outline to put my flowers in.
I did try this a couple of different ways, but ended up using just one type and color of flower. I was so busy gluing and placing flowers, I forgot to take any pictures during. Sorry! But it is pretty simple. I glued them really close together so they would be nice and tight. I even trimmed some of the petals to give it more of a heart shape. I think maybe smaller flowers with tighter petals would have worked better, but I still think this looks good.
I used a decorative stand to display it on and placed it my shelves in my dining room with my other pink decor.
This was really simple, but I think it looks nice and adds just a little special touch to the shelf.
I hope you have a wonderful Saturday!
