Use your imagination and picture these dried hydrangeas dusted with pewter glitter. Gorgeous, right?
My dining room is pretty quiet in September and October and I'd like to make a substantial flower arrangement that will look nice as a centerpiece for a few weeks. Something that will make the room looked "finished" if people glance in. You know what I mean?
I am going to play up the mauve, gray and celery shades of these spent blooms with some glitter. I haven't tried it before, but I imagine that it won't take much more than a well-ventilated area (read: my backyard), a spray can of glue and a shaker of fine Martha Stewart glitter.
I cut these fading blooms off the hydrangea bushes (I hope they will re-bloom!) and have been drying these blossoms in the sun and breeze and think that they will be completely dry within the week. Once I work my magic, I will show you the result. Have you ever glittered something you found in Mother Nature?
