You've Got Mail!

The MHC team were sent a whole heap of lovely flowers to play with last month so picking just a few for a project can be a challenge in itself! One of our 'challenges' was to create a project using Dew Drop flowers.

I came up with this idea whilst pondering my recent house move.  House warming presents are normally restricted to plants or perhaps a bottle of wine.  I wanted to come up with something a little different for a new home owner.

I love American mail boxes - they always look so cute.  I also love anything poking out of the top of a bucket so putting the two together was just up my street!  I used a florist's oasis to secure the flowers.  A little extra hot glue keeps everything in place.

I made the mail box by cutting out two arch shapes and then connecting them together with card. 

When layering your flowers, don't forget your leaves - they're just as important as the flowers and will set off your decoration! 

Products: Cottage garden – Dew Drops, Grandma’s Garden – Handkerchief, Rose leaves.

Thanks for popping in.
