I know I've been absent for a couple of days, but the week just got away from me between studying, graduations, the end of school and such.
However, I do have a fun, inexpensive craft for you just in time for the weekend.
And you'll just need a quick run to Walmart.
It all started when a loud crash heralded the end of the chalk vase.
Savannah had accidentally broken another vase earlier in the week, so I found myself
without any spare vases. Off I headed to Wally World, where I found a wonderful new straight sided cylinder vase for only $4.98. That in itself was coolness, but on the same aisle...
...were these for $2.98. The wheels started turning.
It didn't take long to put one and one together.
Lay the vase on its side. Apply a generous amount of Goop brand silicone adhesive to
a small area around the rim.
Start sticking rocks on.
Give the initial cluster about 15 minutes to dry. Turn the vase and build your border.
We're going to set the finished product in my antique Allegheny Mountains bread bowl
with a little sphagnum moss.
Add a candle and some more of the marble mix for over the top Summer sparkle.
Light, and enjoy!
The total cost of the hurricane was under $10, and I think with a triple wick candle, this will be a perfect touch for alfresco dining.
