I Fauxed...

I made a bouquet of wild (faux) flowers...I don't usually like faux flowers...But if they are done right, they can look beautiful! Who has the time and money to always have fresh flowers? It is okay to break the rules sometimes...And it makes you a rebel, anyway...

So stand up and say..."If I want to faux up my flowers...Dang it, I can!" ;)






I got my "fauxed up" flowers at Hobby lobby...On sale, 5 for $10 bucks...What a deal! lol



I got two different types of yellow "fauxed up" flowers...3 of one, 2 of the other...Duh? lol



I had this pitcher...I got it at Target for $15...I believe they are still there in the dish section...



I bent the flowers to fit the pitcher...I never cut mine...First, I am lazy and second, it helps to secure them in the pitcher or vase...And third, you can always unbend them and use them somewhere else...Ingeniously! ;)




I hope you all have a Fantabulously, Fauxed Up Weekend...;)

I too used "faux" in my decorating - used stems of leaves in fall colors...placed in white pitcher (a garage sale find) and placed in kitchen window.

Have a great weekend and thanks for coming over to the "dark" side (the faux flower side that is ) : )))

That's a beautiful arrangement and I wouldn't have known if you hadn't told me that it was faux. Great job!

Well, at least they don't look faux! :) Love that white pitcher, too!

You can't always have real flowers so I have a red vase with yellow faux flowers and I never cut the stems either in case I need to use them elsewhere!! I like how you think :)

So Pretty! Hobby Lobby has the best faux flowers. I wish we had HL here in Massachusetts! You did a great job here!

One year around Valentind Day, I was iln the Dollar Tree and found some red velvet roses that look so real. I have them on my piano and at time spray rose oli on them. People actually think that they are real.
I love the the white pitcher.
