What To Do With Fake Flowers!

Often in my new line of work, I come across fake flowers and I just love it when I do! They are so fun to use in all kinds of ways.

1. The very first thing that I do when I get them is to wash them. The easiest way to do that is to put them into the top rack of the dish washer and push them down good so that they are secure. After you wash them make sure you check the bottom of the dish washer to make sure nothing was left behind. I suppose you could do the same thing in the washing machine just eliminate the spin cycle. This I haven't tried yet; let me know if you have tried this and how it works for you.

2. Next dream up or be inspired by a project! Here is a board that I made from Pinterest! I started with easy flower pens and added so many many more that looked so fun! I hope this inspires you to create something fun and useful!

Good tip for cleaning the artificial flowers. Some of the artificial flowers are so pretty and the pencil idea is a cute one. Personally I prefer the real thing which I don't treat myself to so often due to rising costs. I tried growing them but so far not a lot of success. Merry Christmas to you and your family Jennifer if I don't read you before the big day. ♥xx.
