Window boxes

Helen Hall has window boxes so of course I must have flowers. The flowers that come with the house (I got a set as a bonus when I bought some spares) are hideous.

I learned how to make roses when I made the market stall, so I made some from fimo, the kind of clay you have to bake afterwards. I don't work a lot with fimo so I don't know how to mix it to get the right colour. Most of my roses turned out dark, except when I took plain orange. I used garden wire for stems. When they were baked, I took small plastic beads for flower pots and fixed them with sticky dots.

A whole evening of flower-making, and they were just enough for three windows! But I may want to try some other flowers for the rest.
