Week 3 into our Home Garden

Posted on Updated on

Its been three weeks since we set up this small home garden in our patio. We did a little bit of home garden shopping during our road trip to Ohio. We bought four varieties of coleus, black dragon, wizard mosaic, festive dance and jazz mix and itsΒ got the red-flowered Begonia too.

The snow flake shaped leaves of the dusty miller is my favorite! But most of all, I love the sun flower. It has not disappointed me since day one, displaying its bright and radiant petals facing the sun each day! IΒ hope to have a wonderful time in my home garden this summer πŸ™‚

Ruffled Paper Flowers

Posted on Updated on

Now that I have made quite a few flower vases I was running out of flowers to display in them.
Then I wondered, why not make my own flowers. So I made these out of magazine papers. Its better to select papers that have a single color pattern so that the flower looks more natural!

Clay Flower Vase

Posted on Updated on

Using craft clay I made thin rounded strips and lined an empty glass bottle to give the vase a clay base. Then using the clay I made little rounded grapes, leaves and swirls to create a pattern.
When the vase was finally painted with bright acrylic colors it became an attractive flower holder.
