Cotton Stems DIY

May 25, 2016

Cotton stems are whimsical and lovely.

But let’s be honest they are so expensive. It’s never been high on my priority list to buy fake flowers or plants, even pretty cotton stems. After studying pictures of real cotton stems I decided to try to diy it and I am surprised with the results

You may need to take a little nature walk. Here’s what you’ll need:
