This week, Northern Colorado has been blessed with spring-like temps. We’re talking mid 50’s and 60’s, with a possibility for 70 (gasp!) on Friday. Its been lovely, and absolutely gets me in the mood for green grass and flowers. 🙂
I love the combination of felt and sequins. Especially on vintage Christmas stockings – nothing like it. Its such a charming combination of simplicity and glitz. And, felt is SO EASY to work with…..what’s not to love about that???
So, in this spring-like frame of mind, I decided to craft a little bouquet for Valentine’s Day. A simple swirl of felt creates a sweet little flower. And, some platinum sequins and seed beads really dress it up!
I used vintage pipe cleaners (that once upon a time, really cleaned pipes – ha!) for the stems and a vintage paper/foil leaf as an extra embellishment. Vintage sheet music makes a great, neutral background matte, framed in an old, simple wooden frame.
This little bouquet is now on my desk and is a great reminder for Spring days to come!
Have a great rest of the week and weekend!
