Hi Think ::
Look what I made today. I felt the need to make something creative last week and forced myself to make it today. Here is what I used (almost all from Michael's)
plastic eggs (I want to come up with something else to put in there or at least paint them teal blue)
ribbon (mine is all from the ribbon outlet, but you could find good stuff at Michael's too)
brown glass crystals that I bought for 90% off at Target last Christmas (you can't really see them in the photos but there are 3 of them on the bottom.
I drilled a hole in the artichoke and strug the ribbon through it. I took apart the red mum and strung it through the ribbon then glued the center of it down and the strung the nest through and gave it some hearty glue as well.
I made a double looped bow with the large black and white ribbon and used a thumb take to stick it to the bottom of the artichoke as well as the little amber colored crystal like things.
I love how it looks. Whatcha think?
