Have you ever grown wheat grass? I’ve been wanting to for years and finally did.
I started it too late in time for Easter, but it’s still perfect for Spring.

I decided to add some fun flowers to the bucket of grass.
I wish my grass outside looked this good.

I used the Accent Essentials Cricut cartridge to cut this funky flower.
I cut 2 of each color to make the flower.

I used Elmer’s glue dots to stick the flowers together with a skewer between the 2 pieces.

I wanted to add some texture to the flowers so I wrapped some bakers twine around the flower petals.
I used a glue dot to secure it to the back.

Then just started wrapping.
I added a button to the center of the flower on the front and back.

I love the added texture!

While I was assembling it in my temporary craft room I decided it looked really good there.
So that’s its home for now. I’m thinking pretty perfect for a craft room.

I love the look of wheat grass but have never grown any. Maybe next year?! Maybe I’ll just start extra late this year! I’d love if you’d come link up at my Tutorial Tuesday over at Our Thrifty Ideas that just went up. http://www.ourthriftyideas.com/2012/04/tutorial-tuesday-5.html
