Natural decoration idea made with thistles

Natural decoration ideaToday I had a walk outside (yes, despite the cold and wet weather) and I had collected some thistles. They were growing right near the walking path and they looked kind of interesting. And I was thinking about using them in my next project. In my opinion there is not much color out there in the winter season. That is why I wanted to paint them. I used yellow acrylic paint and a soft small sponge for applying the color to the thistles.

And now arrange them in a small vase and put them where you see them everyday. Colors lift your mood in the winter season! 🙂
