I got a new couch this weekend…
It’s very pretty, I love it! The guys wouldn’t come down the driveway with the truck so one of them carried the couch all BY HIMSELF!! I was so afraid he would fall and get hurt or drop the couch!
Well, the couch and the delivery guy are both safe…
They were actually going to throw away this corrugated cardboard padding that was wrapped around the couch!
I must have been drooling a bit because one of the guys asked me if I wanted it to help start fires in my wood stove! Haha!
I have been looking at that paper for 24 hours when it hit me…this would make great rolled flowers!
I made a bunch of the flowers like this first. Then I found this straw wreath (you could also use a foam wreath too) and wrapped it with some left over muslin binding.
Glued on some leaf shaped cut outs and then the cardboard roses…
I am so loving it! Thinking that might just look good above the couch!
Just to add some bling, I put some hot glue in the middle of each rose and poured some vintage glass beads (which I bought with those buttons from last weekend) on top of the glue.
I tied another length of muslin around the top of the wreath for a hanger and stuck another flower on top of that.
Looking good, huh?
I decided to see what it looks like hanging above the couch…I may rearrange those pictures and add one more thing, but I am pretty sure that wreath is staying!
Total cost for this project: $3 for the wreath form (after using a 40% off coupon at Michaels), had everything else, left over from other projects!
I am linking to these great parties!
