Turn trash into a pretty Anthropologie inspired flower treasure!
I saw this Anthropolgie window display and decided to give it a go.

I am participating in the April Stash Bust over at Dollar Store Crafts and in this project used the top of a 2 liter bottle, the cap off a shampoo bottle and spray paint to create the above flower.

    For the center of the flower, I used the top off of an Axe shampoo bottle, but just about any bottle cap would do.
