I am so not ready for Fall.
Well, that’s not entirely true.
I do love Fall, and Fall decorating and thrifty Fall crafts, but before I am ready for PUMPKIN EVERYTHING I need some more summer.
This week I popped into JoAnn’s and saw this pretty faux bloom in soft pinks and tan with a touch of gold. It was in with their Fall decor. I held my breath by the cinnamon pinecones to protect myself from a full Fall takeover, grabbed my loot and headed home.
I wanted to do something pretty with this fluffy faux rose and it made me think of how pretty something soft like this looks with something more edgy or utilitarian.
Like a brick.
The brick has sat for weeks and I have not been sure exactly what I want to do but it all came together when this flower came home.
Here is what I used to make my Geometric Painted Brick “Vase”:
- One brick and a masonary drill bit/drill that will make a small hole for your “vase” in the brick
- Gold acrylic paint
- Foam brush
- Tape like painters tape or masking tape
- Faux flower, bloom or succulent of your choice
I began by make a small hole in the brick just big enough for the flower stem and greenery.
I trimmed them down and they fit perfect.
Next I taped off my design and painted the gold in the areas I wanted to have filled in.
Forgive the photos it was getting dark and I was so excited!!
A little dry time, and I plunked my pretty bloom and greenery into their new home, and voila!
A super easy project that use can use in so many ways.
Thank you so much for reading friend, hugs and more hugs!
