Flower Cone

I've said it before, and I'll say it again.  I hate waste.

So I made a flower cone, literally, out of trash.



Well, not everything is downright trash.  Some parts of it are those little scraps that are too big to just throw away but too small to be really useful.  Like a little leftover craft moss, floral wire, and tan scrapbookpaper.




But some of it was most certainly bound-for-the-garbage trash.  Old silk flowers, woven wallpaper samples from the early 90s.




And now this would-be waste is out of a landfill and hanging in my den, reminding me of the blooming May occurring outdoors.


And it didn't cost me a thing.



In addition to the parties on my Blog Parties tab, I'm linking to:
