DIY Air Freshening Bouquet


Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

I absolutely love having fresh flowers around our house but I find that they die all too fast and our fur babies seem to think they make a good snack. Faux flowers on the other hand…success! I found this super cute DIY on Pinterest and decided to give it a go. I’m so pleased with the results and I can’t believe how easy this was. Let’s jump on into it!

Here’s What You’ll Need :

Mason Jar

Faux Flowers (of your choice)

Downy Unstoppables

Spray Paint (color of your choosing)

Here’s How Simple It Is :

Spray paint your mason jar in a well ventilated space, preferably outside.

Once dry, you can assemble by pouring the air freshener inside the jar.

Trim your faux flowers to the desired height and place inside.

Switch out your air freshener whenever you want a fresh scent or when they begin losing their potency.

I love the versatility of this DIY. Depending on the time of year or your décor tastes, you can change out the air fresheners, flowers, or re-paint your mason jars. You can stretch this cute DIY all year round by using thematic elements. I love that and I especially love the look of having beautiful flowers year round.

DIY Wedding Shadowbox

InspirationShadowbox InspirationShadowboxWedding Bouquet Shadowbox

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

This DIY is one that’s been a work in progress for quite some time but I’m very excited to share it with you. I’ve seen so many wonderful and creative ways to showcase a bit of your wedding day forever and I’m here to show you how I’m displaying this treasured memory. This bouquet shadowbox DIY turned how better than I could’ve hoped for! I’m in love with the result and eager to get this on my gallery wall. If you haven’t seen My Gallery Wall post yet, click the link here to take a peek! Without further ado, let’s get into this!

Supplies You’ll Need :

Shadowbox of desired size

Decorative Paper

Picture

Dried Flowers

Wedding Décor (champagne cork, small table décor, piece of lace from your dress)

Glue

How To :

It’s going to pain you and you’ll hate every second of it, but you need to pick apart the flowers in your bouquet. Hang your selected flowers upside down in a well ventilated dark place to dry out. Leave them for a week or so to be sure they dry completely.

Cut and glue your decorative paper to the size of the background of your shadowbox (depends on which size you choose). I find that a simple Elmer’s glue stick works best for this so that you don’t get any bumps or perforations in your background.

Start placing your flowers on the paper and arrange them to your desired look. Don’t glue anything until you’ve decided on the perfect placement!

Once you’ve decided on flower placement, figure out your placement of your pictures and other various wedding décor. Once you have decided on placement, it’s time to glue!

I glued my picture down first, since it was on the bottom, and my Elmer’s glue stick came in handy for this again. Next, I took my Gorilla Glue and started gluing down my flowers and décor.

I left it overnight to dry and settle; then, I reassembled the shadowbox and voila!

Gorgeous shadowbox containing so many wonderful memories. I’m beyond thrilled to finally have this done so I can reminisce about that day every time I see it. Comment below and let me know how you preserved or want to preserve your wedding bouquet!
