Topper?

oldcrafty(8)February 22, 2012

I found this bridesmaids bouquet at the thrift store. Almost to pretty to tear apart but when I saw it I thought what an eyecatching totem topper it would make. Any other ideas as what it's re-cycled life could be?

Before and after removing the pretty ribbon. Currently all the pieces are indivdual stems that have been taped together. I will have to have another set of hands to help me wrap wire to hold them together.

It looks like it would be pretty out in your gardens with 'wind' movement...maybe put in a pc of piping in the ground? Or tucked it a pot of blooming flowers? Jeanne S.

Personally, I'd take it apart & build flowers using the crystals as centers. All in one bunch like that is a bit too much for me. But, if I saw it, I'd have bought it. - Laura

Wow...that's pretty impressive. I think I'd take it apart too. It looks like a fountain to me...for a yard conservatory or a fairy garden. Or a chandelier type of creation. Not sure, but I'll be interested to see what you do with it!

I think I would use some of them in a wind chime & then a few in center of a wide birdbath to look like a fountain, preferably with a wide blue glass bowl as the birdbath. Think it would really show off the crystals! Jan

If these were the bridesmaid bouquets, I'm wondering what the bride carried! That wedding must have been full of bling!

There is so much potential there. How ever you use it, it will be beautiful with the sun shining on it.

That is really nice. I am with everyone I would have grabbed it too.

You probably could not see all the crystals when it was packed with flowers. Just a little sparkle showing between the flowers.

I saw someone here made a teapot totem and used the crystals to look like falling water.

I LOVE sparkly things like that ! If I had it -- I'd mosaic a bowling ball with one of the holes left open on top -- and stick that spray of crystals in it - like a fountain. You're lucky to have found that!

**Now I want one :)

OOOHHH pretty. Yes please tell show us what you did with it. Like everyone else I'd have bought it too.
I could see it stuck in a bottle as a sparkler.
