It all started with tree trimming!!
My husband was doing the spring tree trimming in the backyard.
When I walked outside and saw the mounds of flowering branches he had piled in the yard, that were about to go in the trash, I just couldn’t stand it.
I have no idea what kind of tree this if from, but it has the sweetest little blooms on it.
I knew it would make an amazing flowering branch arrangement.
I gathered some of the best looking branches, and went on a hunt for a container large enough to hold them.
I scoured the house and couldn’t find anything I wanted to use until I ran across this basket in the floor in my office.
It’s was perfect!!
The only problem was that I needed something to hold water so the branches would last longer.
I didn’t have a vase large enough, but ran across this wicker ice bucket in my pantry that has a galvanized lining, and luckily it fit perfectly inside the basket.
I filled the bucket with water and got busy arranging the branches.
Yes, it is huge, wild, wispy and a bit unconventional, but I love it!
It makes a bold statement and cost me absolutely nothing.
I think sometimes when I’m forced to use what I have on hand, I come up with the most creative things.
When I think outside the box, it usually is the most gratifying. I end up with something very unusual and unique that you just can’t buy at a store.
Do you ever try things a bit “out of the box” in your own home decor?
I would love to know!!
blessings and happy spring,
