Give that girl a bag of Potpourri and she turns it into a bouquet!
That's just what founder of reEVENT and lead floral artist of The Monarch Flower Co. Kelly Acock did with a found bag of potpourri, an old screwdriver, a reCLAIMED doily, a square piece of scrap styrofoam and some glue.
This is definitely a process of sorting out the matching pieces, deciding what is light enough for the bouquet and what actually will hold the glue. Anything will work for a handle really, such as a cool stick, dowel rod, the leg off a small stool or an old screwdriver. Cover the base of the styrofoam with the doily or other found material, glue the end of the handle and insert through the material into the styrofoam. Then prop the handle upright in a sturdy pot or vase and get busy. Sometimes it's easiest to start with the largest items first, then fill in the spaces with the other smaller items and leaves until no Styrofoam shows through.
Enjoy your newly reDESIGNED treasure...and enjoy the scent memory as well!
