Here’s a bit of old news: Computers play a big part in our lives these days. They’re everywhere, aren’t they? Let’s dress up a monitor for a friend or relative who works in front of one with a little bit of cheerful whimsy, a Computer Corsage.
Your list of materials is short. You’ll need:
- A large-ish bead cone, small salt shaker, or tiny bottle
- Small dried or silk flowers and other bouquet fillers
- A snippet of self-sticking hook-and-loop tape, (such as Velcro)
If you’re using a salt shaker, you’ve got it made—just choose your flowers, cut the stems to length, and stick them through the holes in the top in a pleasing arrangement.
If you’re using a bead cone or tiny bottle, you may want to wrap the stems of your bouquet with a little wire before inserting them in the cone or bottle.
Once you’ve created your tiny bouquets, simply stick one half of the hook-and-loop tape to the back of the holder, and the other half to the computer monitor’s edge.
Don’t you think this would bring a bit of cheer to an office-worker friend or relative?
