Make Mirrors Out of Fresh Flowers
When you order an online delivery of flowers or someone sends flowers to you from an online florist, you might be looking for creative ways to use those flowers. Sure, you can always place them on your desk or table to serve as decorations, but there’s also more creative and innovative things you can do with them as well. For instance, you can use the online delivery of flowers you received to make fresh flower mirrors that are lovely and add a little something special to your day.
First, create a circle from heavy duty floral wire. Make the circle as big or small as your want your mirror to be. Then, cut the stems of the flowers you received from the online florist. Cut them at a diagonal down to 3 or 4 inches, and group them in bunches tied with floral tape. Next, arrange the bunches of flowers on the floral wire and attach them with the floral tape. There’s no right or wrong way to arrange the flowers. Just make sure that you tape them tightly so that they don’t droop or fall from the wire.
Once you’ve got the frame filled with flowers, then you can attach the mirror to it. It’s best to use a flat sheet or mirror with no frame on it. Use binder clips to attach the mirror to the flower frame, clipping the clips on the frame underneath the flowers so that you can’t see them. Space the clips approximately 4 to 5 inches apart so that the frame is securely clipped to the mirror. Once you’re done, fluff and rearrange any flowers that become skewed a bit during the clipping process, and then you’re ready to hang your fresh flower mirror.
No matter whether you’re sending flowers to India or you’re the lucky recipient of an online flower delivery, there’s plenty of creative ways to put your blossoms to use. This same tutorial could be used to create fresh flower photo frames. Just substitute the mirror for a photo frame.
