Recycling Fake Flowers, Again and Again

While hurting for some crafty things to blog about, I thought I'd share the joy of recycling fake flowers - again and again.

Last year, I blogged about spring garlands that I had on hand for years.I turned these garlands into last year's spring wreath.For this spring's door decoration, I didn't want to hang the same wreath. So I disassembled it (ripped the flowers off the form) and saved them which is so unlike me. If not for the constant inspiration of fellow bloggers, I would've thrown them out.

I turned this spring garland-turned wreath into a palm cross for my mom.Thrifty and pretty if I do say so myself.

That turned out so pretty, Carmie! I find that I'm saving things I might not have saved pre-blogging, too.

So pretty! I've never seen palms made into a cross like that one - love it!

Every gardener makes a list of spring flowers during the dark days of winter, and looks forward eagerly to the first burst of spring color. find more

Do you have instructions on how to make the palm cross? I'd like to make it because it's pretty.
