Remember when I took you shopping with me last weekend? I found that wonderful lavender display that was created with faux lavender from Hobby Lobby. I briefly explained how it was done, but thought I would show you with pictures too. I already had some of the faux lavender on hand and wanted to make mine look as good as the one I saw.
So I started with this container.
Then I added some grocery sacks to fill it up just a bit, since my container was so deep.
Then I used some of this (purchased at Hobby Lobby with coupon). It came with several blocks in the pkg.
I placed some on top of the grocery sacks.
Then I made sure to spread out the flowers on each of these stems to get a fuller look. They start off looking like this.
I poked each stem down into the foam blocks making sure to angle them near the edge of the container.
When done, it looked like this! This looks pretty full with only using 4 flower bushes too.
What I find the foam blocks do, that the plain grocery sacks don't do by themselves, is it allows you to control the angle of the flowers and keeps them secure. That's what allowed me a fuller look using fewer flowers than normal.
I did the same thing in my foyer with the flowers in my olive bucket.
So there you have it! A lush display that didn't cost a fortune.
Thanks for stopping by!
