{floral friday}

{floral friday #2}

I decided to not feature a real flower for floral friday this week since we're are going out of town and I would have hated for the flowers to only look pretty while we're gone.
{floral friday #2}
So I decided to make my own flowers and spent some time crocheting these little things.
I found a small branch the other day and painted it (of course! ;) ) white. I used my newly acquired mini hot glue gun to glue the crocheted flowers on the branch. Now I have flowers that never wilt!
And now we're off to the capital of the world!! Well, okay.. The capital of Germany. It's a pretty cool one, though! You should check it out if you're ever in Germany. :)
Hopefully the weather plays nice and we get a chance to take some cool pictures.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

    Funny how use bloggers start to think alike, I just did a post on leather flowers and attached them to a stick too! Great minds.

    I've been inspired! I have forgotten that I love to crochet. That sounds ridiculous, I know. Life happens and things get put on hold sometimes. I loved the flower idea. Thank you. -Bethanie

    @ The Rusty Bucket: I know how you're feeling. I hadn't crocheted in forever and fell back in love with it after working on this project.
