DIY: Big yellow flowers.

Last weekend started the 56th "Temps de flors" (Flower season) exhibition in Girona. The whole city center gets full of flowers; public buildings and private patios fill up with people taking pictures to these ephemeral artworks.
One friend of mine, from university, who lives in this gorgeous house, decided to take part in this event. Our group of friends made a "balloon forest".

We needed:
- big yellow balloons
- white funnels
- tie wraps
- insulating tape
- corrugated steel bars
- fast-dry cement
- landscaping bark
- flowerpots

To make the flower: we blew up the balloon and sticked it to an end of a corrugated steel bar with insulating tape. To hide the union we put a white funnel and fixed it with some tie wraps.

We "planted" the flower with fast-dry cement into the flowerpot. It's possible to use sand, gravel...instead of cement (you just need to make sure the flower won't fall). Then, we covered it up with some landscaping bark in order to have a nicer finish.
