While I’m at it I’m making a deconstructed dollar store wreath.

The destructive little kid in me is coming out!

and it’s about time! 🙂

This is a water pick.  They are usually green plastic tubes with a rubber stopper on the top.  The stopper has a small hole in the top.  Remove the stopper, add water, replace the stopper and insert a flower stem through the hole.  I can’t remember where I found out about floral water picks, but I’ve been using them for years and years.  I have a few in clear and some are rounded on the bottom like a test tube.  Some vintage water picks are glass.

The first water pick I bought was at a yard sale.

 I wanted several more for a Christmas mantel.  I planned on piling loads of pine clippings from the yard to the mantel.  So off I go to our local floral shop and asked for 10 dollars worth of picks.  I thought they would be about 25¢ each.  That would give me 40 additional picks!  The florist head to the back.  I waited and, waited and

waited.

Finally, she returned up front carrying a large box.  The picks were 5¢ each!  I now have 200 plus floral water picks!!

Now I’m looking to change them up a bit.  So I wrapped three in twine.  I did it messy.

Then I tied the wreaths together along with broken pieces to form a…snowman!  {I love winter… especially in the spring!}

I tied in the water picks that are filled with waxflowers and hung with twine on shutters.
