Cute and easy DIY springtime centrepiece
Springtime means it’s time for me to bring flowers back into my home. I love fresh-cut blooms brightening the place up.
As much as I love having flowers around the house I’m terrible at keeping up with them. So much so I’m wondering if there are better ways to bring colour into my home…and upcycle at the same time.
I had a bunch of burnt-out light bulbs, waiting for recycling, and I thought they’d make great flowers. I spray painted them, knit up a few cute little leaves, added garnish (tissue paper) and voila. A really cute (and easy!) DIY springtime centrepiece.
Here is what you need
This is what I used for this project but any similar-type objects will do the trick. I used objects I found in my home.
- Burnt-out light bulbs
- Spray paint
- Tissue paper
- Knitting needles
Here is what you do
Again, make it your own. Here is what I did.
- Spray paint light bulbs and leave to dry overnight
- Prep bowl with leaf-like foliage such as tissue paper, knitted leafs, and felt cutouts
- Arrange light bulbs in bowl till satisfied
Easy, simple, and fun! And I think this will last longer than a bouquet of springtime flowers.
