Dough Bowl Decorating for Free Part 2

Well my hydrangeas have become a huge part a decorating this summer. Good thing since I love them so much.

My dough bowl had gone into hiding literally. I had to call Dennis to find out where he put it, under our guest bedroom bed. What?!?!?!? He refers to it as my canoe. Thanks, hun.






Thankfully our hydrangeas have been drying themselves so whenever we have people over I just make new arrangements and and let those dry out. This arrangement went into my hurricane vase.



The only question was what was I going to do with all the dried hydrangeas. I was going to decorate my dough bowl for free, of course. This isn't the first time I have done this you can see those results here, but hey this one needs no maintenance.




I used florist foam that I had on hand. I cut each stem fairly short and stripped all of the leaves off. I stuffed each steam into the florist foam. This allowed each bunch to sit in the bowl without tipping.


The first group looked really good, but......


It needed more.


So it go more.



I love the finally result and they even look good close up. The dough bowl is currently on the kitchen table, but not for long. It will be moving to the dining room shortly. I have a little project planned.
