Embroidery frame and balloon. What's the connection?

If you have kids at home, you are bound to have some balloons from parties the kids had attended. These may have been given out at shopping complexes during promotions. Once these balloons have deflated what can you do with them?

First go and look around for some embroidery frames. You most likely have at least one sitting in your store room somewhere from a past hobby phase someone in your family went through.

Got that? Now sit down and watch Hillar Bergman creates a drum out of them with the help of some clamps.

Drum away abandoned materials.

Table Chic from Trash

I have been watching David Tutera on Party Planner and...

...he has inspired me to create a flora centre piece for dining table.

All you need to salvage from your bin are:

1) 4 Plastic Bags in one or two colours to from stamens
2) 4 Plastic Bags in a larger size to from petals of flower
3) 2 Plastic Bags in smaller size in 2 different shades of colour
4) 7 small batteries to to add weight to piece
5) 2 rubber bands

Equipment Needed
1) Scissors

Here is the instruction.

Like it? Then make many of them in different shades to decorate your dinning table.

I have been inspired by David. Have I inspired you?
