The buckets are from Hobby Lobby (on sale even!) Again I raided my various stashes and found some floral foam. I cut chunks with a serrated knife and stuffed them into the buckets.
I used my die cutter to cut out several flower shapes, some circles for centers, and some leaves. I also dug out some small styrofoam balls and cut them in half, then wet felted them to make a few "3-D" centers. Next step was a lot of mixing and matching and gluing. Yes, gluing. GlueCatGlue for this project.
Once flowers were glued to wire stems and leaves were added I worked out my color combinations to balance as best I could among the buckets. A bit of a bend here and there and then I stuck the stems into the floral foam. Some shredded paper fake grass finished them off.
Though I feel like I cheated by gluing, boy howdy that sure makes things faster and easier! G suggested a Halloween version in black felt with missing petals. I'm sure Jack Skellington would appreciate them.
