Being The Thrifty Groove, I really try to keep the cost of things I play with down to the lowest price I can. A big part of that is using things around the house when I do little projects.
Awhile back I bought this cute little metal container at a thrift store for $1.29. I knew I wanted to use it for a Spring centerpiece kind of thing. So, I scrounged through my flowers and little doodads to decided what I wanted to use in this container.
While looking through my stuff I realized I didn’t have any floral foam or styrofoam to use for the flowers. So, I looked around the house for other options.
Hey, a styrofoam carry-out container will work just fine!
All cleaned and now can be cut to what size I need. You could use a styro egg carton, cups or any other thing that can be put in the bottom and used to hold stems. Nobody is going to see this part, so use whatever works for you.
Now I wanted to have a couple of my little white birds peeking out of the flowers. So, I grabbed a couple of ramekins to use as their stand and placed them on top of the styro.
And then start poking in the floral stems.
I know pansies and Gerber Daisies are not Spring time flowers but, I just love them for their bright cheerfulness!
The little birds are all nestled on their little perches.
They are happy little birds!
Just a fun little spot of Spring.
So, don’t forget to just use things around your home instead of buying something. If nobody can see it, go ahead and get thrifty creative!
