I’ll admit sometimes I delve into the near ridiculous in my quest to use what is at hand, but this time, the ethereal aspects of what I created delighted me.
After I pulled away the dill seeds from the flower-head, I noticed how strong and intact the skeleton had remained. I don’t know what possessed me, but white spray paint and beads flared up as an idea in my addled head. I couldn’t resist…I sprayed the dill, let it dry, and then inserted beads into each umbrel with a pair of tweezers. It was easier than I had assumed, and within a few minutes, I had a very unusual pair of everlasting flowers to place in my living room.
* Crazy Crafter’s Tip – Hold the beads between two fingertips, grab with the tweezer, dip the bead in a dab of glue, and place into project.
