In her video, Lori teaches us how to make table runners with floral print designs bleached into the fabric. The best part is– there’s no need to stop at table runners! This project could work on essentially any cloth you have, as Lori demonstrates by using this technique to customize a matching set of napkins for her floral table.

Artful ‘Junk’ Flowers DIY
If you want a striking, one of a kind art installation that you can make yourself, this is the project for you. Lori teaches us how to make flower statues out of various materials that can be found all over the place- from your home, to the craft store, even to thrift stores and yard sales. These flowers will give you an opportunity to make use of all those pretty, interesting objects around your home that haven’t quite found themselves a permanent place yet. While this one may seem a bit daunting and complicated, Lori’s tutorial shows how this project can be broken down step by step for a fun, relaxing experience.
