March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers.

Not at my house. The flowers came in March.

Abby Sue's room is quite pretty now, but it still needs a few things. On her birthday list, she wanted a flower garden in her room. Pretty tall order, considering I don't have a green thumb and the cat would chow down anything that we planted. So, we decided to do the next best thing - and fake it.

I bought some bristolboard from the Dollar store and cut out the frame of the window box.

I cut the sides as well, and then used this wonderful duct tape all around the outside.

Then I took some foam squares and placed them inside. We have fake flowers all over the house, so I grabbed them all up and went to work.

Abby Sue and I bought some really, really pretty birds on sale at Christmas specifically for this project.

So, now my baby has beautiful flowers all year round

I love how they turned out, and the best part is the project cost me a whopping $6.23. Easier and cheaper than a gardener, isn't it?

  1. That is freaking amazing, what a great idea!!!! I love it!

    1. Thanks Megan. I really love how it turned out. I think the trick is to have the really nice fake flowers and not the cheapy ones from the dollar store. Only took me about a 1/2 hour to do.

  2. Stopping by from Transformation Thursday!
