Flowers unfortunately live a short life, they wither away and eventually pass on. We don’t say die because flowers never die. They pass on, so that other flowers have the opportunity to share their beauty in your home as well. Imagine looking at the same flowers time and time again, it can get pretty mundane. Hence why fresh flowers are a better choice then those plastic imposters. Sorry, back to the reason you are here the easiest and funnest DIY project ever.
Flowers do wither after awhile, but that does not mean you can’t use them for fun DIY projects to decorate your home or as a quick fun project for your kids.
