Peek-a-Boo Bouquet

Hey, readers.  Welcome back to Aji's Decorating Corner.  In my last blog post, I talked about some spooky fake flowers that I got from the Dollar Tree.  In this post, I'll be showing you what I did with them.

Since I didn't have access to a vase, I decided to put the flowers in this sugar skull mug.

As I stated in my previous post, I wasn't crazy about the spiders that were on the flowers.  Luckily, I was able to just pulled them off.  No cutting required.

Next, I got a black glitter branch, sandwiched it between the two sets and tied them together with a piece of creepy cloth.

Because I didn't have any styrofoam on hand, in order to keep the bouquet from moving around in the mug, I stuffed it with plastic shopping bags (Preferably in black/dark colors.)  If you decide to try this project yourself, the number of plastic bags you use will depend on the size of the mug.  For this, I used four.

I took one of the bags, balled it up and stuffed it at the bottom of the mug.  Then, I put the bouquet in.

After that, I took the remaining bags and stuffed them around the bouquet.

To finish it off, I cut a few strips of creepy cloth and wrapped them around.  This also helps to cover up the plastic bags.

Behold!  The finished product.

And so concludes another episode of Aji's Decorating Corner.  If you enjoy reading my blog and want to show some love, consider donating to my Ko-fi page.  The link can be found in the header under "SUPPORT".  Til next time.
