Decoupage Sunflower Pail
Fall is here and besides beautiful colored leaves it means lots and lots of Sunflowers. I just love those photos of row after row of sunflowers. Where I used to live it was such a delight to go to the flower fields just outside of town and see a sea of sunflowers. The flowers in the area were grown for seed and I never grew tired of seeing the awesome flower fields. Ahhh...since I don't live there anymore I have the beautiful images in my mind and a tiny little flower garden in a pail - this was a kit complete with the soil pellets that I added water to and they expanded enough to fill the pail - amazing! The lid was a cardboard circle with a lovely illustration of sunflowers. I soaked the cardboard in water and the paper image slipped right off of the cardboard. After it dried, I used Aleene's® Instant Decoupage to apply the image to the side of the pail. I couldn't throw away such an amazing illustration. My sunflowers are about 2" tall right now, so I bought some sunflowers to Fallize my home until the little guys grace me with flowers.

Until next time - think holidays!
