Paper Raffia Flowers

Today to church I was wearing lots of clothes on my body and feet
because there was a snow storm this morning.

I looked over at my friend and she had on really cute wedges and manicured toenails.

Yea, I was seething with jealousy.

I came home and I was in the mood for spring.

So I got out a little project that I started last summer,
and I made a bunch of paper raffia flowers.



These are super easy to make,
it will only take you a few minutes.

I got the hat and purse at Target last summer in their doller bins.
I think they were $2.50

The flower loom I ordered off of amazon, but I have seen them with the knitting stuff at craft stores.
The paper raffia is found in craft stores next to the wrapping paper.


These are so easy to make,
 I first saw them on Martha Stewart.
There are great instructions there and a video.


The video is way better then my explanation.


I put a bobby pin in them to hold them on my sun hat, shoes and hair.




I sewed them on the purse.


I may spend the evening putting these on all available surfaces.
Pillows, curtains, flip-flops, my children... Maybe I'll make some for all my neighbors too!

A photo of me looking smashing in my sun hat.
If only I lived in the 1920's I would fit right in with this look.

This is going to be fun!
