Super Easy Accent Flowers

While I appreciate and love artisan made flowers, sometimes you just want to add a simple pop of color to a scene as a nice accent. Here is my simple way to add a cute, small floral touch! They look great potted or in baskets. And the best thing is, $1.00 will give around 30 bunches!!!
 
This is a pretty ugly "flower" from the Dollar Tree. Most of this will be used as weeds in my haunted manor project. However, with a little color, they can be turned into tiny little accent flowers and be made to look pretty cute.
 

 Here is a closer view of the branches. You can see that each little bundle is easily pulled off.
 
I pluck them off and "plant" them into florist foam blocks to work. Now simply pick your favorite colors and go to town!

Try it. It is super simple, cheap as heck, and quick!
