Plywood Wall Flowers

When my hubby came home with a sweet surprise for me last year, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  Plywood flowers!  Guys, as in male species, dudes, boyfriends, blokes, whatever you are, if you're out there reading this, next time you think about buying roses for your DIYer sweetie...  whip a "u-ie" in the flower shop parking lot and hit up Lowes for a power tool. You won't regret it.  (Hey, don't hold me responsible if that flops, okay?)
I had picked up the white flower once from an older gentleman who made it and just loved it.  It hangs on Tori's wall, over the little play nook door.  I laid it out on my sheet of plywood and traced around it with a pencil and cut it out.  While I didn't get it perfect, it wasn't too bad!
My kids can be like leeches.  Especially when power tools are involved.  After cutting out a circle for the middle, I screwed it on from the back.
'Twas fun painting them funky!
And there they are displayed at a craft show.  The one that about four people came to.  Epic fail.

  4. I love these. You chose great color combos. I just told my husband that I wanted a power sander and he thought it was a trap since I love flowers but I'm completely serious. I have a whole list of tools I want so hopefully he will start adding them to my collection. Great job on these.
