While I am working on another post, I thought I would give you a little crafty filler, that I borrowed from JOY. :)
I had purchased some loose leaves from the dollar tree to decorate my topiary with. Well I did not use near as many as I bought, so now I have like 2 1/2 bags of leaves.
I figured I would just put them back for next year, until I saw this post over at Joys of Home. Oh my gosh, I can so totally do this. So I went out and got me some Styrofoam balls.
Once I got them, I painted them just in case any of the Styrofoam were to show thru.
Then I started hotglueing leaves all over those suckers.
Once I covered every little bit with my leaves, I had this....
What? You don't see a finished product? That's because I forgot to take a picture before I put them in the bowl.
Here is a picture of the two leaf balls I made and then added to a bowl.
You like my little bowl? I got it at a yardsale for 50 cents.
The acorns and little pine cones, I got at TJ Maxx.
Its not my favorite display, too much brown going on. The leaf balls are also sorta hidden in all that stuff in the bowl. Not sure where I am going to put them yet.
Jennifer, do you recognize the tree? I purchased that at thrift store when Jennifer and I met and went thrifting and antiquing. I just added a bow. :)
