This week is teacher appreciation week (why this is right before school gets out and not in the thick of the school-year…i dunno) and Mother’s Day is on Sunday so this is a quick and
affordable free (!) little change.
I happen to be prepping some flowers for our newly minted 6 year-old’s birthday party and started twisted the wrappings around (fresh and easy has really great flowers right now, by the way). I thought it a definite waste to throw away the stuff!! You know, it’s that delicate paper-y stuff between the plastic outer covering and the flowers themselves.
My first instinct was to take it upstairs and make a super fast ruffle (yes, I am that crazy), but I’ve been trying to find ways to cut back on my projects so twisting seemed more appropriate.
I simply wrapped it around and knotted it twice until it was super tight. Remember that it’s delicate, so be careful not to tear. I “unpeeled” the pieces of the two ends and they just unfold into the shape of rosettes. You could knot it once and it would work out, mine was just a little long for me.
