Just had to share!

Look at these, aren't they awesome!!! There just has to be a way to make such a thing. Link Here.


  1. There is, if only I had access to a ceramic kiln. You roll out light brown clay, cut out the flower shapes like you would cookies. Then drape them over a rounded mixing bowl, the ones that are almost a perfect half circle with only a slight flat surface for standing, put the flat section as the middle of the flower. Let it dry all the way to "Bone dry" and fire 1 time. The next day or so, once the kiln and the piece has cooled, glaze it in white or any pastel color to match your decor. Or you could glaze in clear, and decoupage some great designer paper, or even newspaper cuttings would be cute.

    Most area's have access to a ceramics shop, or a business that will fire your pieces for a small fee (those kilns use a TON of energy) I usually check with the local high school ceramic class to see if I can borrow a chunk of workspace.

    Hope this helps!

  2. I would use paper and roll the ends of the petals around a pencil to give them the right depth/dimension and then just stick a thumb tack in the center of them to attach them to the wall. Maybe even glue a little gem onto the thumb tacks first so that the centers sparkle! I think I might have to try this...

  3. I love it! I'll have to try that.
