In my last post I labeled these simple pipe cleaner flowers (made with a crafting pipe cleaner called "chenille sticks with bumps") as being a project for kids, but now that I've placed my sweet bouquet in this little quirky shoe vase, well I think they're a great summer centerpiece and fun for any age. Love their simplicity and the fact that these pipe cleaner flowers look like doodles! And if you don't have a boot shaped vase, well a teapot would look great too! In fact how about a bunch of teapots?
And as you can see, they work really well with a pom pom bouquet, which by the way is a great thing to have on hand to add a festive feeling to your home when the need arises, (like right now, as the holiday of Shavuos is tonight!) I could imagine bouquets like these looking great at an outdoor summer birthday party or even as casual decor to welcome guests in your guest room.
Wishing you all a fabulous and joyful holiday of Shavuos! When by the way, the Torah will be given for the 3,324th time! Here in Israel (as opposed to everywhere else, where the holiday is two days) the holiday is just one day, which means less cheesecake for us but one less day away from my lovely readers. All the very best!
