About a month ago, I was perusing the blogs on my feedly and came across the PERFECT project for some small jello molds I bought over a year ago. Artsy Vava created a super stinkin' cool welcome sign with a similar mold.
The first of these flowers was made for my mom's birthday. The past few years, I have tried to have something I have made to give to her. I actually thought of her when I first saw this idea.
Isn't she purty? Mom mentioned that the big colors in clothes at one her favorite stores this season was turquoise and brown and how she had to buy something in those colors because she didn't have any. So I decided to make her flower in those colors of course! I made hers much more rustic than the others, because we share the taste for that style. The wood base (as with the other two) were edged and stained by hubby. I pretty much just told him the size I needed them to be and he went from there. It should also be noted he helped me glue them all together with epoxy.
This little lady is my Steeler's inspired flower. Sadly, we said goodbye to an awesome coworker last week as she left to take on another position in the field. I was sad to see her go and when we all decided to gather together a goodbye basket for her, I knew what I had to make. She is a huge Steeler's fan and I figured she can either display this at her new job, or in her recently purchased home. One of a kind for sure.
This last little number was made for part of a raffle to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness month at work. Last year I made these to donate. When the email came out asking for donations again, I decided I could make a pretty pink inspired flower. I hope whoever wins this in the raffle is a happy camper and makes it a nice little home :).
I couldn't be happier with how these turned out and might have to look for other jello molds in the future. In fact, I already have another idea brewing that will come out at Christmas provided I can find what I have in mind.
What was the best thing you re-purposed?
