I have a confession: for almost a year I’ve been heavily addicted to the site One Pretty Thing. I check it daily and have been saving DIY projects from it for a long time. I just wanted to share some of my recently featured favorites with the hive.
I love, love, LOVE terrariums and succulents; these would make fantastic centerpieces. Not to mention, they’re the kind of centerpiece that you can take home and will last for a long while. Can’t you just imagine these surrounded by tiny votives?
These waxed flowers (from Martha) seem out of my league but the comments make it sound like a great project!
Can you tell how much I love succulents yet? As a former Arizonian I really can’t get enough of them. I even drove a poor baby Organ Pipe cactus all over the United States in my trunk because I couldn’t part with it! Mr. D and I have debated about using succulents or not, and we still haven’t decided (I can’t believe we’ve honestly be discussing these for 8 months). These are intended as favors, but I could easily see them placed on a table with votives. If you mixed up the potting height, they’d also be great as stand-alone centerpieces/favors (favorpieces?).
Who knows what Ikebana means? I didn’t until I checked out these flower arrangements. We’ll be doing a take off of the curly willow/orchid arrangement, but with delphiniums and curly willow (on the card tables, etc.).
Okay, I know this might feel like a DIY/Martha overdose, but I had to share one more. This one doesn’t contain flowers – they’re luminaries from Martha. I honestly squealed when I saw these!
