I am so pleased to announce that today we have Lori from Life as Lori on Red Heads Craft More Fun. Lori is uber-talented and I love reading her blog. Speaking of which, when you are done reading Lori's awesome tutorial here, *spring* over to Life as Lori to read a little something from yours truly! Take it away, Lori...
I'm so excited to be here at Red Heads Craft More Fun! I love all of Courtney's craft. Thank you so much for having me over. It's nice to meet all you crafty people!
Hi, I'm Lori from Life As Lori!
I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, co-worker and probably someone just like you or someone you know. I have been married to my husband Steve for 12 years. My daughter, Emily is 13. She plays basketball for her school, hangs out with her friends and acts like most other 13 year olds! Oh, and somehow, when I'm not working or mothering or friending, I'm the Assistant Basketball Coach for Emily's team!
I love puttering around in my yard and since I started blogging about a year ago, it seems my inner craft bug has decided to creep out.
Enough about me!!!
I wanted to share with y'all my two Easter topiaries!
I bought all of my supplies from Michael's
2 small styrofoam balls
2 sticks (I bought a pack of 8)
3 packs of sparkle Easter eggs(I love all things that sparkle, my dog's name is Sparkles)
2 small hydrangea
2 Easter buckets
glue gun, screwdriver
I painted my sticks brown and then I pushed the ball on the stick.
Take your glue gun (I don't know about you, but I love mine. ) and start glueing the eggs on the styrofoam ball.
It's O.K. that you can still see some of the styrofoam. That's what the flowers are for.
I used a small screwdriver to push the flowers into the styrofoam.
I put floral foam in my bucket and placed the topiary in the foam. I added a ribbon and Easter grass to cover up the foam.
Now you have two Easter egg topiaries! These were really easy and I think they turned out great!
I host a party on Thursdays, called Get Your Craft on Thursday!
