Welcome to the letter F in the A to Z Challenge for 2018. For this year’s challenge I am working my way through the alphabet at Michaels Arts and Crafts store. In Michaels land, F has to be for Floral.
Because it is springtime there are mostly flowers that can be found during this time of year. During the winter, there are more oranges and reds and types of flowers that can be found in the winter season. All the flowers are perfect for people like me who don’t know how/want to/like gardening. In other words, these flowers don’t need water and they never wilt or die!
I think if all these flowers were real, the smell would be overpowering.
|These are peacock feather wreaths. They are so pretty. The picture does not do them justice.|
|Again, mostly spring themed but there are similar ones during the fall and winter seasons too.|
So easy to have a bouquet of flowers on your table every day!
There is a lot more that I did not capture in pictures. During Christmas time there were long floral swags that you could use to decorate the mantle or drape around a window sill. Michaels also carries wire and branch type wreath bases so if you are really creative you can make your own wreaths. They also have floral tape and wire cutters to use to trim the stems on the flowers.
I did try my hand at wreath making. The green sparkly flower and the silver pinecones are picks that came from Michaels.
This is the finished wreath. It is for sale on my Etsy site if you are interested, let me know!
Well that about takes care of “F.” Are you into flowers? Can you make your own arrangements? Tell me about it. Also if you get a chance, go visit some of the other A to Z bloggers.
(Note: I decided I should add a disclaimer to these posts because I certainly don’t want to give the idea that I am being paid by Michaels to do this or that they are furnishing me with material. All pictures used in this blog series were taken by me at local Michaels stores, or are my personal pictures and every Michaels store may not have everything shown.)
