Projects – Dill Part 2/Over the Top Crafting

IMG_7256

I’ll admit sometimes I delve into the near ridiculous in my quest to use what is at hand, but this time, the ethereal aspects of what I created delighted me.

After I pulled away the dill seeds from the flower-head, I noticed how strong and intact the skeleton had remained. I don’t know what possessed me, but white spray paint and beads flared up as an idea in my addled head. I couldn’t resist…I sprayed the dill, let it dry, and then inserted beads into each umbrel with a pair of tweezers. It was easier than I had assumed, and within a few minutes, I had a very unusual pair of everlasting flowers to place in my living room.

* Crazy Crafter’s Tip – Hold the beads between two fingertips, grab with the tweezer, dip the bead in a dab of glue, and place into project.

  1. Sometimes it’s those miniature flashes of brilliance that add a little pep to our step. Always fun when the end result is something pretty and fun, too. Love the way it turned out. Tiny dots of green against the spiny branches.
