I had seen this artichoke pot at a florist in California. They were like $30 a piece and I pulled a Tami and said, I could totally make that! :-) So I bought all the items I needed to make them. I've had all of it for a while but Tami is like my side kick when it comes to wedding stuff and any time that I'd think about doing it, I just couldn't seem to bring myself to start without Tami's moral support. haha So last night she came over and she chatted while I worked on the pot, but I felt so much better and motivated having her there! haha
I got some flower foam and wooden skewers for the base.
Then I took a wreath and wrapped ivy around it.
I needed to cut off the wooden stick and my first instinct was to pick up the knife. Not a good plan. I would have been sawing for hours! haha
Wire cutter was a much better plan
Then I glued the wreath to the wooden skewer to get it to stand up on end.
Last, I added spanish moss and an artichoke on either side. The final product will be a white washed flower pot and a ribbon around the pot. Didn't get that far last night.
