I always hate to throw out all those pretty cups of colors after we color our Easter eggs. So this year I decided to dilute them a bit and put them in pretty glasses on my window sill to decorate the house a bit for the holidays!
Very cool idea!
Here I painted a pot black and yellow and filled it with flowers using coffee filters.
Approximate Time: 2 hours
Put your floral organizer in your pot and arrange your flowers. To cover your organizer I painted coffee filters with red food coloring to put in the pot around the flowers. The last step is to glue bees around your pot.

Here are some of mine. When we find a pencil that won't sharpen right, we use them for these little flowers!
Yours are so beautiful! They look like roses...mine look like carnations!
Love the carnations I will have to try one!
I used a glue stick on the edge to secure the napkin. Then I hot glued a styrofoam ball inside each one to stick the flowers in. I added ribbon, rose buds, sequins, tulle and teardrop pearl beads. I attached them with a hot glue gun to the outside. I filled each one with bright green paper grass and pulled it up so it stuck out of the top about 2 inches. To some of the others, I added pink flowers inside them. They were a big hit at the shower and added wonderful touch. I added them to the guest tables and the Mommy and Daddy to be table. Everyone loved them. They were so easy to make.
You could really decorate these for any occasion. I am keeping them to do something for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have a huge sit down dinner at my house for these holidays.

Sweet! Very creative! I love that you can reuse the containers.
Yes! Kudos to you for recycling as well as saving money on an item that will only be used for that occasion. Baby showers can be expensive, so the more ways that money can be saved the better. Thanks for including the picture. They're really pretty and festive.
Very fresh and pretty! great tip so many ideas too, using a pringle potato chip can
all kinds of ideas. Thank you for idea and inspiration!
Just glue on the things you have then tie ribbon around and hang as a decoration. Just use your imagination.
