    These are so adorable. I am building a special “wall” for my daughters that include flowers. I think instead of painting them on I will try these. They offer so much more character.

    You should paint the wire with glow in the dark paint so it looks like neon! Thanks for posting. Hello from Treasure Box Tuesday.
