Crayon Tin

When doing floral arrangements, choosing the right vessel is an important factor in how it will turn out. I had these leftovers from the magazine rack post that I did last week, so I decided to do a quick and fun DIY in a vintage-style crayon tin I picked up a while back from one of my trips to Long Beach. In my opinion the crayon tin is really the star of this arrangement, and it completes the bright and happy theme! This DIY is really simple and I think it would look really cute for kid's birthday party.

This is amazingly simple - begin by placing the milkweed in the tin Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Then add the gerbera. I wanted to have them all concentrated on one side for a little eclectic look. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Unique Vessels: Magazine Rack

Happy Labor Day to all of my American readers, and to everyone else, happy Monday! I don't know how many of you have experienced this, but I lost some of the photos from one of my recent shoots, including the first two or three of the post I'm sharing today. It was a major bummer, but luckily, this post is pretty simple, so we are not really missing any steps that can't be figured out. For today's Unique Vessels edition, I thought that it would be fun to fill a magazine rack with flowers. It is simple and easy, quite portable, and looks great in the corner of a room, on the wall, or even on a table (resting against the wall). I used three types of flowers with different textures to keep things interesting - of course, you can choose any flower and color combination that you like. The rack itself is another fairly inexpensive (less than $30) HomeGoods find.

I placed a narrow container for water inside each compartment of the rack - it can be either glass or plastic (sadly, one of the missing photos).

Flowers: gerrando gerbera, african milkweed (the green balls), sedum

I started with the gerberas and sedum, then added the african milkweed for a fun and unique element (they are spiny, but not sharp). Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com
