When I saw this trio of buckets at Tuesday Morning for just $10 I snatched it up! Then I had to figure out what to put in them! I decided that jute would look great with the antiqued buckets, so I played around and came up with jute flowers (inspired by hydrangeas) with upholstery tack centers.
jute or burlap
floral foam or styrofoam
Cut your jute ribbon into two inch squares.
Fold in half.
Fold in half again.
Hold the folded corner and trim the square into a petal shape.
When you open it you will have your flower!
Dab white paint randomly on the flowers,
Cut a styrofoam ball in half and cover it with masking paper (purchased at Home Depot).
Fill the bucket with floral styrofoam (purchased at the Dollar Tree).
Join two of the flowers with an upholstery tack, then push the tack into the styrofoam ball. Repeat until the bouquet is full.
The beauty of using tacks is you can reposition the flowers as desired to achieve the fullness you prefer!
I just love it! I hope you do, too!
