"Have you ever done flower arranging", I was asked while working in Hobbycraft. "No, but I will have a go" I replied.
And so I did.
Now please, flower arrangers, do bear in mind that this was my very first attempt, I have never done it before, I was not sure what I even should be doing, so this is done my way :)
First I took a basket.
Then cut down a block of 'Artificial Flower Oasis' to fit. (I worked out which one to use as they were artificial flowers and it said that on the packet ;) )
I then started chopping up the stems of some artificial flowers that I had carefully chosen thinking they would look nice bunched together.
First flower in. Do we need any more than that? I actually think that looks quite cute.
But I continued on, adding a bit here and a bit there.
They actually have some really nice artificial flowers in Hobbycraft once you start looking at them.
And so with a bit of this, a bit of that and a touch of the other, my creation was finished!
I guess I was pretty pleased with it as a first attempt, and not really knowing the rules of flower arranging.
It cost £26.33 to make, including all the flowers, oasis and basket - and it is actually on sale as it is in the Hobbycraft Carlisle store right now - but there is only, and only ever will be, one of them :)
If you look at it from this angel do you see a little flowery person staring back?
