Flowers

I have struggled with flowers for a while.  They are so expensive and so temporary.  And they are difficult to do DIY- if you get real flowers you have to add them to your last minute plans and that’s just not something you want to do.  I explored several non-flower options such as wire bouquets, lanterns, origami, button bouquets, and more.  I have finally settled on what I think is my favorite:  clay flowers.

I purchased some clay and some starter tools, and while I will need some practice it will totally be manageable.  Because of the labor involved there can’t be large amounds of floral decorations, but that is OK with me.  And this will be a project I can do months in advance at my leisure!  I’ll post progress!

      It’s a special kind of clay created by a lady in Hawaii. It’s incredibly light and air drys. I’ve made a few flowers as experiments so far – i should post pictures…
