All you need are a pair of scissors, cocktail stick(s), and super glue - I tested these two out and the bondloc was the best (it dried quicker!)
Of course the flowers! I bought all of these little trimmings in Hickeys (a Herbadashery and Fabric store) in Galway - there was loads in each packet and they were super cheap. I did intend on using ceramic flowers but I couldn't find any anywhere (apart from on jewellery - which was too expensive). I was quite eager to do this post so I was too impatient to look on eBay and then wait for the post but there are some on there if you search “ceramic flowers”.
And finally, the glasses themselves! I bought these beauties in Pennys/Primark for only €1.50!! BARGAIN!
Firstly cut off the buds from the stem...and the leaves if you want.
I used a cocktail stick to apply the adhesive and, the tag from the glasses as a surface to squeeze the glue onto.
Then apply it onto the back of the flower bud. (I also put a layer of glue onto the glasses because they were quite slippery - it helped make it stick better)
So that's what it looks like after the first two buds are stuck on - I glued the biggest buds at the corners and then stuck smaller ones around them.
HEY PRESTO! The final result.
