Upcycled Mother's Day Bouquet

I am loving this "upcylced" trend going on now. Mainly as the creations are really cheap to make. I'm pretty proud of my little bouquet that came together in 10 minutes. 




Started with some side-of-the-road wildflowers. (I love Tennessee this time of year.) I arranged them in an old spaghetti sauce jar. The jar still had remnants of the label, so I went into the attic looking for some fabric or ribbon to cover it. 


Found this ugly baby's outfit in the Goodwill box. I stared at it for a while, then had a little epiphany. If I cut one of the legs off....


and wrapped it around the offending the spaghetti sauce jar, I could use the top snap to secure it.  Tuck the fabric under the jar, add raffia for extra decor and .....


Voila! So pretty and so free!

what a cute idea and a fun craft idea too. My girls will love it.
I have to laugh I told Lara about the give away and she won. Can't wait to see what photo she puts in. She takes some really fun ones.
