First of all let me say that I am loving your February is for Finishing submissions! I'm super excited that everyone is as into this as I am. And just a reminder - this week's contest closes tomorrow so get your projects in if you want to win those fabulous prizes!
So waaaay back in December the Girl and I made these awesome flowers from the Made Tutorial:
I loooved them. They were simple and cute and she had so much fun helping me make them:
she loves a good craft project:
So we hung them up as Christmas decorations.
or for the full perspective including a sleeping dog and a humidifier in the background b/c when I took these everyone in our house had a cold:
I especially liked the side view:
But! I didn't really like them as Christmas decor so much. Yeah they were the right colors... but... they seemed more like Valentines Day to me. I pictured them as a bunch of carnations. Perfect for V-day. So way back when I made a few plain red and white ones and bought a bunch of random napkins with the intention of filling our house with paper flowers:
And then Life happened. And I never got any further than that. But! It's February is for Finishing! So the other day my girl and I did this:
We didn't quite get a house full of flowers but oh do I love the finished bouquet:
Again the full shot - no dog this time b/c she was napping with the Girl in her room.
I especially like the polka dot and stripey flowers:
And the view from my spot on the couch makes me happy:
Yay for finishing something I started! And double yay for decorating that is seasonally appropriate and crazy cheap!
