Floating Cup and Saucer

Morning and we have a new challenge starting at Daisy Chain which is "Floral" and this is a project I have been dying to try since last year when I actually bought four cups and saucers from the local charity shop for £2,then they got put in the cupboard and looked at now and again till finally I plucked up courage to have a go and did intend to take step by step pics-but that never happened!!!I shaped a teaspoon and attached it with a glue gun and left to dry overnight.The next morning was amazed it had actually held but kept toppling slightly so glued in a couple of large stones from the garden for stability and covered with green to hide,then just went mad with loads of flowers I have collected and never used and added abow from ribbon stash.Might even make again seeing as I have three more sets lol might just might even use handmade flowers next time-no holding of breath though lol.
