Little Blue Spring Garden Flowers

          How does your Spring garden grow?

Our Spring garden is bursting with the most pretty blue Spring flowers this year! We made them from an old thrift store sheet.  So take a walk with us on the garden path as we explore and take a closer look at these Blue Spring Flowers.

You may recall seeing this blue and white material before here, we just love it so much and wanted to use it again in our Spring decor, specifically, make Spring flowers from it. We love that we have gotten so much mileage out of one thrift store bed sheet!

To make our flowers we simply tore some strips and began rolling and twisting, and hot gluing here and there to keep the rosette together. Once we were finished with the rosettes, we cut some flower shapes out with a punch, and we also made some pinwheels. We hot glued the rosette, paper flower and/or pinwheel and lollipop stick together to make our flowers.

We took a little box we had and placed Styrofoam in it to told the stick in and covered the area with paper shred to resemble dirt. Like in a planter box.

We thought we would use some pictures frames to frame our Blue Spring Flowers with. Not bad.

Thankfully with this little Spring flower garden there is no weeding!

And our allergies will not flare up either!

We thought we would go for more of a Spring garden feel, and put some of our flowers into some of our pretty pale blue flower pots.

The pale blue flower pots were another thrift store find last season, and as long as stay in one piece, they may may be making an appearance around here throughout Spring and Summer!

"Oh, hello their Mr. Blue Bird peeking around the corner. Nice to see you again this Spring".

We hope where you live you are able to take advantage of putting together a little Spring garden. Either a real garden or a paper and fabric garden. the question remains the same, "how does your Spring garden grow?" Be inspired. Get creative! 

Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
                                                         And forget not all His benefits:
                                                          Psalm 103:1-2

  1. Very pretty! I wish you had a few pictures of you making the flowers along the way for those of us who aren't as talented as you. I am going to try to make one, but I am not sure I will be successful. These are beautiful and I like how you put them on pinwheels and "planted" them. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love the flowers. I just painted a planter today and need to figure out what I'm going to use at my flower. You inspired me with this. I'd love it if you linked this up this week at Whimsy Wednesdays.
