Repurposing Plants

Believe it or not, the flowers that Ryan sent to me the week I was visiting my parents were so lovely and thoughtful that they actually changed my mind about carnations (an impressive fete since I’ve been strongly opposed to them ever since I couldn’t make my bangs look like one back in the 80’s). As much as I loved the arrangement, after a week and a half, the stems got a little gooky and the daisies began to droop. I was about to toss them when I realized that we could turn the blooms into an art project…

A Photo Tutorial, if you will
