Two Minutes, Five Bucks

Aqua poinsettias. With glitter. I know, right?
I'm not going to go nuts with them, relax, but I did have an idea.
Grab your lovely assistant, five blossoms from Walmart at $1 each, and a woefully unembellished lamp in need a little holiday kick.
Take the handy little clip on the back...
...and clip it to the lamp.
Nope, it's a wig. She's heavily into theater and design.
Honestly, the staging and costume took a whole lot longer than the craft.
Does this count as a craft?
Well, we're not going to dwell on that. I have a couple more things for you later, and in the meantime, you may want to jot these down on the shopping list. Walmart has a ton of fun colors.

LOVE it! My bat lamp from Halloween is awfully naked. It could use a good holiday makeover.

Beth @ Wiccan Make Some Too said...

The lamp & the assistant both look beautiful! Sweet idea to perk up a ho hum lamp.

This is TOTALLY a craft! I love it. Also, I wonder if V's way cute hat also needs an aqua glitter poinsettia? She looks highly theatrical and ultra darling.

Those are awesome! They have all different colors, you say? I may have to swing by and pick some up - they could totally do anything from home decor to outfit accessory.

And I totally think this counts as a craft!


Jane @ The Borrowed Abode said...

Yes!! It's definitely a craft, because you did work to make it happen!
PS: Savannah's wig is sweet. She looks gorge!

MJ said...

Carol said...

Might I add that these clippy poinsettias are perfect for quick wreaths, too. My previous one was made with them, but I was too early for WM this year.
