Upcycled Makedo for Prim Flowers

Last night, while hubby was working (he's always working - God Bless him) I decided to take a couple of my prim flower ornies and create an upcycled makedo, since I don't have any real flowers planted outside, yet, or any inside for that matter :)

I grubbied some old tin cans, added a homemade label, stuck my ornies on top of some painted dowels and added a piece of homespun.  They sit pretty tall at 12".  I think they came out pretty good, they look adorable on my shelf!  I have another idea for more of my flower ornie tucks...........to be continued

Hi Lori,
Happy Birthday to your boys! Those cakes looked so yummy! Also, I LOVE those prim flowers in the can and the labels are great! Also, love the bunnies. I need to take more lessons with sewing, I didn't do so good with it last time. I would love to make things like what you do. See you again soon. Have a great day!
