A Charming Picket Fence

Last week I posted a little tutorial on how to make your own
wire flowers.
Today I'd like to show you a quick piece of decor I made with those. 
I snagged a couple pieces of garden picket fencing from a sale last summer. I previously used one to make a little sign. But the 2nd one has just been sitting around. Waiting. 

Once I started making these cute and easy little wire flowers, I got inspired! 
So I took out some burlap, roughly marked off where it would show between the pickets, and alternately painted it with Barcelona Orange and Johnston Daffodil.

I painted a light coat of Santa Fe Turquoise over the fencing and attached my burlap to the back, trimming it off after I had stapled it on. 
My wire flowers were all set to go. I had used buttons that would coordinate with my paint colors for this piece. And I painted a little Johnston Daffodil on the flowers I was going to place over the orange, just to make them pop a little more. 
I simply attached them by sewing them onto the burlap and this cute little piece was finished. 
This charming little picket fence is the perfect match for our shutter shelf and crafty spring bouquets!

I'm loving how this turned out. Hope you do too!
