Today I would like to share an up-cycled project of mine. This project was originally a gift that my daughter received from a very talented Aunty – The tree was originally covered in Ferrero Rocher chocolates.
This is what I did with the gift, once the chocolates were all gone:
The plant pot was originally terracotta, so I painted it with white gesso to tie in with my chosen colour scheme: White and Gold.
I used a selection of faux fabric and foam flowers. I also added in some glittered Gold foliage, which I cut from some decorative sprays.
To fix the flowers to the polystyrene ball that is the centre of the arrangement, I used a hot glue gun.
For some extra detail, I attached pearls and inserted Diamante pins throughout:
For the finishing touches to the base, I covered the cement – used to weight down the arrangement – with sphagnum moss and added a diamante tiara:
I hope that you have enjoyed todays share; As always any questions are most welcome.
Take care and Happy Crafting!!
A beautiful project Jennifer, a great idea. I love the colours.
I love this Jennifer. What a great idea to upcycle the tree. The gift keeps on giving! I love the little flowers and all the special details.
