First Day of Spring

Spring comes this year on a cold grey day. With nothing blooming outside, I made flowers from assorted discarded bits and attached them to a branch. The branch went into a pot which was the former home of a rosemary plant that did not make it through the winter. You could also use a can or a jar.

I used circles and squares of assorted materials including Britta water filter packaging, netting from cherry tomatoes, a plastic bag that held grapefruits, oreo cookie wrapping, tea bag containers, and the protective foil under the lid of the yogurt container. I used ties saved from bread and bags to twist and hold the flower.
