I was inspired by Amy's Cala Lilies at Positively Splendid Check out her blog HERE, they are AWESOME!
Cala Lilies are my favorite flowers they are so beautiful in their form and simplicity, BUT i am terrified of the sewing machine, and I don't have any needles for it either! Plus my Scrappy vase needed a friend, I like pairs and threes for some reason!
So being inspired I looked down at the jean shorts I had used for the band on the Scrappy Vase. There was a lot of fabric left. So I cut up what was left of the band which wasn't much, but enough to make two flowers.
Here's what i did
I took a piece of the leg of the jeans and a piece of the band.
I put a stripe of hot glue across the small piece of denim and rolled it into a cylinder.
Then i put hot glue on the back corner of the large band piece and twisted it into the shape of a lily.
Then i put a dot of glue at the end of the cylinder and pushed it into the lily all the way to the bottom edge and i squeezed it shut
Then i wanted to add some more of the jeans to the vase so i took the bottom hem of the shorts and cut it down and glued it around the lip of the vase
Then I did the same to the bottom
Then I thought "these flowers need stems!" So i took a strip of the denim and I put a small strip of hot glue down it and twisted it into a stem!
Then i added leaves
And Here is the finish Product side by side with my scrappy vase!
