Here are three ideas for those scads of silk flowers you see languishing on the shelves of Goodwill (or, worse yet, in your living room.)
Monica Ewing at Crafty Nest took an ugly poinsetta garland and turned it into a stunning pendant light.
Disney at Ruffles and Stuff took a 25 cent thrift store clutch and covered it with Dollar Store silk flower petals.
Danny Seo at Daily Danny soaked his in plaster to create faux ceramic flowers. (Messy but original.)
