That WREATH from yesterday and our SILVER SHELLS are going to need a little accompaniment, so let's have some more silicone adhesive fun! Grab yourself two florist foam cones from
your friendly neighborhood Dollar Tree.
You'll need two 8" azalea pots, $1.27 each at Home Depot.
Silver, white and aqua spray paint, which I had on hand.
You'll also need:
A 1/2" dowel rod
A brick of florist foam
Assorted bits of shells, sea glass, flat backed marbles and beads
Two glittery floral picks. Mine were $1 each at Walmart
Paint your foam cones silver. I did my usual 3 coats.
Douse the pots in aqua, and paint the dowel rod white. I don't know why the rod isn't pictured. I guess it was spared by some spoiled child.
Gather all of your goodies and let's have some fun. The wine is not included in the supply list but can be added at your discretion.
Go ahead and make the holes for your dowel in the bottom of the cones by simply pressing it in. This will be a lot easier now, trust me.
Same with your decorative glittery pic topper.
Set the cones side by side and use the Goop silicone adhesive to pile on the shiny stuff, working in straight rows and allowing it to dry a little.
Turn the cones and repeat.
The beads make excellent filler.
Pop half of your floral foam brick in each pot.
Stuff the gaps with crumpled newspaper.
Have a sip of wine.
Cut the dowel rod in half (I just broke out my pruning saw) and insert one half in each pot.
Grab your fully encrusted cones and assemble!
Set your finished product up against a
cheap and cheesy super high quality back drop and take some cheesecake photos.
I covered the newspaper with flat backed marbles using a technique commonly known as "dumping stuff out of a ziplock storage bag."
Now I can hardly wait to start decorating next Friday!
