Spring Fluffing

In the process of adding a little spring our lives, my lovely other half brought these home to me the other day!

I put them in my Spray Painted vase and decided to add a little more spring to it. It was extremely easy, wanna see? I cut the jute twine and ribbon long enough to wrap around and tie in a big enough bow for my liking.


Then I cut a 4ish inch strip of cream burlap and cut it in half so it was super skinny.

You could tie a bow with the burlap but in my silly ol' mind it would have been to bulky.. See?

So I improvised and I tied the ribbon and jute together around the vase and fluffed with the bow until I liked it. Then I folded and tweaked with the burlap in the back of the ribbon to hold in the shape of a bow. A faux bow, if you will. No bulk and just a hit of that lovely stuff called burlap!


[That color is a little funky..whoops. As you know I'm too lazy to change that. We'll have to suffer through it together. ;)]
Easy peasy! Then we had a photo shoot in my bedroom.

Needs some texture though huh?
Love.It.

So pretty...I'll admit...I'm jealous...I may have to buy some flowers, since the ones outside keep getting covered by snow:(. I do love that vase...

Isn't it lovely to have flowers in the house? I have to bring some of the daffodils inside and make a vase like this.
