When I saw these awesome heart-felt botanical creations by Susanna of @ohsusannamakes I knew I had to get her in for a workshop! The only thing better than fresh flowers are flowers that never die. We spent the evening sipping on some wine, wrapping balls, glue gunning our fingers, laughing, cutting and having an all around good time.

Susanna started making flowers from felt for her wedding. All her floral decorations were made of felt. Even the smallest of details were thought of including her hair clip which has inspired some of her designs today.

We started with the potted cactus. This was a good practice run before heading into our bigger project. I think the hardest part was wrapping the styrofoam balls and it not coming out oblong! At least that was my problem. It's a good thing cacti are not all perfectly shaped!

We also made floral hoop rings where we learned different techniques to make all kinds of flowers. From shape petals to different colours, everyone came up with something unique and fun!
