When my sister was visiting Houston from Virginia in early June, I introduced her to the wonderful world of Hobby Lobby. IT WAS FANTASTIC! We spent hours in the store and had a blast coming up with some new ideas for projects. Since I had been looking to updated the window above our kitchen sink, I took advantage of her input while she was in town.
I purchased a small container and 4 hydrangeas (one of my current favorite flowers). The total cost for the project was $5.00!
On each stem, I pushed the leaves to the top and snuggled them right underneath the flower.
I cut off the end of the stem and bent the remaining piece of the stem to a little more than a 45 degree angle. The angle of the stem held the flowers in place within the container; therefore, no glue was required and I can change up the flowers whenever I want. I put two flowers on each side of the planter.
Here are my hydrangeas in the kitchen window, with my milk jug in the background. My kitchen is in blue and white and I was going for a fresh countryside look. What do you think?
