Repurposed Wedding Decor Flowers

This post was originally a guest post on East Coast Creative, but I thought I would share it over here as well!

As many of you know, I just got married in February.  Lately I've been trying to repurpose a few of the items I DIYed for my big day so I don't waste them! I had a ton of these fabric flowers left over:

Which I had made to hang off the pews in the church.

Since hubby and I recently bought our first house I've been working on collecting/making some home decor accents. I thought I could use the silver flowers from the pew cones for up in our bedroom, which is eventually getting a grey/silver color scheme.

I got this bucket from the "as-is" section of IKEA for $1.50. There was nothing wrong with it...I think they just aren't selling them anymore!

I spray painted it silver with leftover spray paint from another wedding project

I poured in some glass marbles (that were actually left-overs from my bridal shower!) and then stuck in my fabric flowers (this post has a full tutorial on how to make them if you are interested)

Here's the finished product:

Yay! I think it turned out so cute, and all it cost me was the $1.50 for the bucket!

I put my little flower bucket up in our bedroom on our IKEA TV-holder-thing-a-ma-whatsit. Yes, that is the technical term.

And there are the flowers! 

Slowly our house is becoming more decorated....and slowly I'm using up some of my wedding decor too :)

I'll be linking up to these parties:
