I wanted to put something on my corner table ,so I decided upon this flower basket.The idea was to reuse,less cost and less time.This diy project has two parts
I had seen this beautiful idea of DIY project on icreativeideas.com where you covert a glass jar using brown paper into beautiful vase.Inspired by it I created a basket from plastic cake packing cover.I didn't want to use glass as the table is low and kids can access it thus may break and hurt themselves(when you have really curious kids around).
- Plastic cake packing cover
- Brown paper bag
Take the brown bag cut into thin strips.
Twist the strips and glue it to the cake cover.
FlowersAs the basket was big enough and I required about 20 or more flowers so I choose something which are fast easy and have volume too.So I settled for pompoms.For stem I used news paper/ad papers.
- White Tissue paper
- Green Tissue paper
- News paper/ad papers
Cut the tissue papers into squares.I cut my sheet into 16 squares each.
Arrange them into group of four with one green at bottom and rest three are white.Fold into accordion fold.Fold at the middle and staple.Cut edges into half circle.
Now open the white layers up and green once down.Glue a stem to the center on the green side.Arrange the flowers.For presentation I have used a white doily.
