Flower Pot

Good Morning Everyone!  It's Chris from Get Inspired With ChatterScene.  First I wanted to say thanks to Pam for asking me to be on the team. I am honored. TY so much!

Today I have to share with you a cute flower arrangement I made to display on my front porch.

 I had saved some oatmeal containers because I had seen a project in a magazine for Valentine's day using them. Well I never got around to using them in February so I brainstormed another way to use them. I had been wanting to put a cute decoration on our front covered porch so I decided to use it to make it.

I covered it in paper. And filled half way with Kitty Litter.

Created my cut outs in the Cricut Craft Room.

The flowers were cut from the Cricut Cartridge Accent Essentials.
The Butterfly is from the digital Cricut Basics in the craft room.
Flowers cut at 3. Butterfly at 2.25.

Here is my paper button buttons I chose to use

I painted some white dowels with brown ink.

Assembled all of my pieces

I arranged each flower into the kitty litter ( holds the sticks up great ) and then filled it the rest of the way  with shredded paper. Tied ribbon and hemp around top and added butterfly.

Thank you so much for looking:) Hugs!

Wow these are so pretty. I will now start saving the containers too. Love the butterfly. The button on it is such a cute addition and really pops up the whole project. TFS

Great project. The weather has been so good here in Colorado lately that would look so lovely and summery on my front porch. TFS.
