Wire And Nail Polish Flower Bouquet

Even the simplest of things
can be beautiful. . .

a smile,
a gentle touch,
sweet laughter,
a forgotten memory,
strolling through a field of flowers.

The simple things 
are also the most extraordinary things.




Simplicity is the key note
of all true elegance.
- Coco Channel -




My dear friends, sometimes the simplest of things can be the sweetest. . .
these things can be the loveliest to add to a room in the home.

Simple. Refreshing. Beautiful.




These delightful flowers were made from wire and nail polish - that's all.
Pearls were added to the center for an elegant touch.




There is pure and simple beauty
to the ordinary rhythms of our everyday lives.




Look for the simple beauty in your daily living,
it's there. . .
it's always there.




When your life feels black and white
make sure that you dream in color.




Have a simply beautiful day, sweet friends!

I have never come across anything like this before, stunning.

Gail @Purple Hues and Me said...

Wow, Stephanie! Your nail polish and wire flowers look amazing! You've mastered something I've tried over and over to do, but couldn't quite get the polish to adhere and stay on the wire completely. I got frustrated and gave up. It's not an easy task to achieve - at least for me and kudos to you for a beautiful outcome!

Tamara said...

Deborah Montgomery said...

This was like The Wizard of Oz, starting out in black and white and then changing to glorious color! What a fun way to show your beautiful flowers. You're so right about the simple things, but I have to say, these don't look simple to make! At least not for me. You did a beautiful job. xo Deborah

Hi sweet friend,
What an adorable project you shared with us! Aren't those flowers so cheerful, and they were magically transformed from black and white to beautiful colors.
I hope you're doing well. Love and hugs sent your way.....

These wire flowers are delightful, Stephanie. And the pearl in the middle adds a special touch, indeed. Your black and white photos are so pretty, but the last one in color made me smile. Color in our lives is such a beautiful thing.

I hope you're doing better with the passing of your Grandpa. I have been thinking of you, my friend.

love, ~Sheri

Debbie Harris said...

Simple...pure beauty...joy in everything should we desire to seek it. :-)
These would make for adding a smile to any face, Stephanie. I'm amazed at what the nail polish does, very interesting in deed. Your pearl makes the flower complete.
You're clever ~ black photos to beautiful color, nicely done.
I pray you are having a most beautiful day!
Love you ~ Mom

Those are so cute! When I was teenager I had a craft kit that was similar. Wire to make petals and a plastic type solution that you dipped it in. I made lots of flower arrangements with that. I'll have to try this new version. :)

Wow! I have never heard of doing such a fun craft with nail polish! What a unique way to highlight such a beautiful project by starting off with black and white photos, and adding the touch of color at the end - brilliant! Your vase of flowers will last for a very long time, and is absolutely beautiful! Enjoyed the post very much! Hope that life is somewhat settling back down for you, and I can imagine that doing a fun project like this was a great way to relax. Simple things are so beautiful - agreed!
