Creative Reuse is Beginning to Bloom

Springtime can either be a favorite season among many or the most hated of them all. If you’re like me, springtime is the season of runny noses and itchy eyes. If you would like to get away from the real flowers and move onto creative reuse flowers, here are a couple of ideas:

The first type of flowers can be made out of paper. The example you see to the left was found on The flowers shown are made out of card stock and made to look like lilies. The nice thing about these flowers, you can change what type of flower, color, and type of paper you would like to use!

The next type of flower that you can make is out of fabric. The example shown is supposed to be used for a bridal bouquet, but you can easily change that by placing these flowers in a vase or a stylish bowl. The flowers that are shown on are little bit more complicated, but it should be worth the time you put in.

Creative reuse flowers can also be made out of coffee filters! They might not look exactly like flowers, but they will sure add color to whatever room you place them in! All you need is to paint on the coffee filters with watercolors and cut them in whatever way you would like to. For full instructions, click here.
