Faux Mackenzie-Childs Sunflowers....

I recently bought three MacKenzie-Childs sunflowers for $15 ea (additional 40% off). They are beautiful and of great quality:


I wanted to add a few more to the vase so I went to the Dollar Store and bought one bunch of three rust colored sunflowers on a stem and a roll of 'off brand' duct tape.



This was a very inexpensive craft that only took a few minutes to make some 'faux MacKenzie-Childs' sunflowers!

I laid one petal onto the tape, pressed it with my fingers to adhere and cut it to size:


I did this to every other petal:


Two flowers had the tape on the back petals and on the third I put the tape on the front petals:


These added a bit of height and an additional color to my bouquet!


This took all of 20 minutes and cost only $2 !!
