Yummy Bouquet

This is a simple project that is perfect for lots of occasions. I made them for our secretaries at school who are the BEST! But I think they would be great for drama performances (that's where I stole the idea) or graduations too. I started with a popcorn box that I had purchased at Target a long time ago. Mine were cardboard so I reinforced the bottom. Next I taped the packages of popcorn to the outside. I used florist foam on the inside, added a piece of tissue paper to cover it then attached the candy bars to kabob sticks. I broke about a 1/3 of the kabob stick off and used the shorter sticks in the front and the longer ones in the back. I added curling ribbon to the sticks. Mine is actually paper raffia from World Market. Then I arranged them in the box and used a full length stick to add the card.

Stenciled baskets

I'm using this idea for Mother's Day presents. They are just peat pots spray painted white. I used number stickers as stencils. My 2nd graders will use permanent markers to write messages to their moms and have red handles. But I think these are pretty darn cute!

How do you like your eggs?

Do you like them crackle paints? Covered with tissue paper? Or perhaps an old McGuffy reader? How about chalkboard paint? Or just hanging out?
