What's the budget? $0.
Is there a theme? Nope.
No budget and no theme are as deathly combination as unlimited amount of budget and specific theme. So I came home with big tin cans and two days to make centerpieces. When you give Victoria a project without any directions, you have to guess she will not sleep for two days. You will have to assume her head might explode with ideas especially for a project that have $0 budget. Well, challenge accepted. Here is what my work table looked like after I went through my stash of treasures.
Yes I could have just painted them and be done with but it is me you talking about here. Good thing I like to hoard random things because they certainly came in handy.
Here they are. I had so much fun making them. Somebody needs to get married so I can plan their weddings! I love lace and I had plenty of it to give romance to the cans. Can you see fairy dust too? Yes, I got plenty of that too. That's how we roll in this household.
Everywhere you turn, I have dried roses hanging somewhere.
All of my dried hydrangea and faux flowers came in handy.
And I couldn't help but doddle with a gold leaf pen and cut out paper butterflies.
I love how they all came out, especially since I spent zero dollar on the project. I will never look at tin cans the same way again. It kind of makes me sad to think that they might all get thrown away after the fundraiser. It is so beautiful here. And by beautiful I mean it is 35 degree and sunny. Oh, New England. I got some pretty awesome projects coming soon. I can't wait to share with you!
