Amazing Plant Sculptures In Mosaiculture Festival in Montreal, Canada

Flowers are beautiful on their own, or used to create something else entirely. A whole wide range of plants are necessary in order to create a sculpture like the one above–with deer running to and fro, horses galloping through water, and a goddess-like giant Zen at the center of it all. You see can this incredible plant-based creation at the Mosaiculture Festival in Montreal, Canada.
“Land of Hope” is the theme being celebrated at this years plant sculpture festival. The theme is subjective to many meanings, but at its heart is meant to spread awareness about the importance of taking care of our planet. In order for these gorgeous, detailed, and unmatched sculptures to exist over one million plants are necessary. In order to keep our planet populated with greenery, we must reconsider how we are treating the planet on a daily basis.

How To Spray Paint Fresh Flowers
Since I can't get blue roses for my wedding, I looked into dying them blue, which can be done, but with limited success and too much labor and time. Instead, I stumbled upon this informational tutorial about getting the job done but with floral spray paint. Here are five methods for spraying fresh flowers for your wedding or any other use. Technique 1: Misting Hold the can 15" - 18" away from the flower when spraying. Move the flowers, not the can. Let it dry before adding coats. Tip here is to layer the color. Technique 2: Air Brushing Hold the can 20" away from the flower when spraying. Move the flowers, not the can. Here, you're just highlighting. Do not apply full coverage. Technique 3: Toning Hold the can 15" - 18" away from the flower when spraying. Hit just the edges of the petals to tone the flower. Don't completely cover the blossom. Technique 4: Back Spray Hold the can 15" - 18" away from the flower when spraying. Flat and wide single petal flowers are best for this. Mist the flowers ONLY from the back to develop deeper intensity. Technique 5: Tipping Hold the can 15" - 18" away from the flower when spraying. This works best for roses and carnations. Cup the flowers in your hand so just the tips are bunched together and exposed. After spraying, you will notice that just the tips are marked with color. If you've ever tried to dye your flowers and have found quick solid success, I would love to hear from you. My wedding theme is Tiffany Blue and as the new year gets closer to my wedding day, I still haven't figured out the flowers. HELP!! <3 Thank you!

This Mall Santa Is Toronto's Latest Fashion Icon.
He's making a list. He's checking it twice. And he's also really, really, ridiculously good-looking. Say hello to Paul Mason, a veteran male model who's embraced his age by becoming 'Fashion Santa' for Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Look out, Portland Santa. There's an edgier Mall Santa in town. His promotional photoshoot has gone viral, a collection of shots where Paul assumes the role of a slimmed down, GQ-esque Santa Claus, donning red leather jackets or pulling along a chopped down pine in thick knits and a tailored winter coat. What's up, Santa? You silver fox you. But wait, there's more! According to the mall's official website, every time a visitor shares their selfie with Fashion Santa through social media using the hashtag #YorkdaleFashionSanta, the mall donates $1 to the Sick Kids Foundation, a non-profit funding local pediatric hospitals. I just looked at the Instagram tag and found this lady up here. I mean, I've never seen someone more excited to donate a buck to a cause, have you? In any case, locals aren't the only ones having a fun time with it. Paul - I mean, Santa - has been really impressed with the kind of audience Fashion Santa has convinced to come out and pay him a visit: "On Saturday, I had a woman, she must have been 70 years old, she said, 'I haven't taken a photo with Santa since I was like five.' I love it." So if you're in the Toronto area during the holiday season, get ready to strike a pose with Fashion Santa. It is, after all, for a good cause!

DIY Address Number Wall Planter
You all know by now how much I love planters, pots, terrariums, etc so it should come as no surprise that I'm sharing this awesome DIY I found over on Shanty2Chic. Here's a simple walkthrough of how to create your own house number/flower planter! Depending on the supplies you choose, this costs less than $35! Supply List 1 – 5.5″ cedar fence picket 1 x 4 x 8 cedar board Metal Address Numbers Succulents (or plants of your choice but, come on, succulents!!!) 1. Using a small hand saw or a ridgid miter saw, cut your fence picket into 3 pieces that are each 18″ long. Using a drill, add 3/4″ pocket holes on two of those 3 boards you just cut (see above photo) 2. Use a drill to attach the three boards using 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws through the pocket holes. Your boards will then look like the photo above. (the back of the boards are shown) 3. Next make your 1×4 cuts. This will be your planter. I made 4 cuts… 1 – 10.5″ 2 – 3.5″ 1 – 12″ I added 3/4″ pocket holes to one side of the 10.5″ piece. Use these pocket holes to attach the planter to the planked back. These will face up and will be covered by the plants. After adding those pocket holes, attach your two 3.5″ side pieces to the 10.5″ bottom piece using Gorilla wood glue and 1.25″ brad nails. Your box should look like this so far. 4. The final step (of making the frame) is attaching the top 12″ board. Use a nailer with 1.25″ brad nails and wood glue to attach it. 5. Stain and sand (optional) then when dried, attach your metal numbers using a drill. 6. Add in your plants and attach to a wall with nails, duct mounting tape, etc! And you're done!
