Every now and then I’ll make something that tugs on my heart strings. It doesn’t happen too often, but over the holidays (when I was on a bit of a crafter’s high) I made some votives that made my heart swoon. They were easy to make, matched everything, and most importantly, were covered in gold. Rather than pack those beauties away all year, I decided to keep them out for spring and use them as bud vases. It’s always great when a project can be used for more than purpose, don’t you think?
If you have yet to work with gold foil (I strongly suggest you do, it’s addicting!) hop on over here to get the step by step instructions for this project.
For my arrangement, I bought a single bunch of ranunculus, two roses, and one stem of berzelia. With that, I was able to fill one vase with a blend of each of the flowers and the other with just ranunculus. As much as I love a large vase of flowers, there’s something nice about having mini pops of color around our living room.
And if you happen to have a hankering for more flowers, be sure to follow along with my new Instagram series #sundayflowerseries! Even if it’s only a stem or two, I’m making the effort to keep fresh flowers in our home on a weekly basis. I’ll be sharing my picks for the week on Sunday, thus, Sunday Flower Series!
