Egg carton flower pots

Hello dear readers,

I need flower pots, as many as possible.  Found this wonderful  tutorial for making flower pots out of card stock https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZQHxtIAVhY.
I wanted to try it but didn't have the card paper nor the mosaic cement.  Instead,  I had  at hand plenty egg cartons left over from the holidays so I tried, with a few changes, to make pots using this material.  With a few changes from the original tutorial, here is how I made my flower pots:

Materials used:
Egg cartons
Tacky glue
Foam piece or eraser
pen handle (for rolling)
Sand paper
Acrylic paints

This is how they look after adding the top bands and trimming the bases.  Now comes the sanding part.  I sanded them allover, sides bases and tops.  Now they are ready to be painted.

After sanding the edges get smooth and it's hardly noticeable where they were glued together.

From  now I shall hopefully never be without planting pots.

Wish you all lovely days of sunshine and blessings.

"Under the Dome" gifts

Hello dear readers,

It's called holidays or vacations so why is it that always when they end I find myself needing a good rest?

Here are a few more "under the dome" gifts that I chose to make this time.

The two little grazing  giraffes are tiny plastic beads.  I added the tails, made the tree and fence.

There was no time to make more scenes,  I'll keep my ideas for later on.  Instead I  made
small flower arrangements in beautiful glass beads that I found in a store specializing in beads, and placed them under the domes.
They look nice and dust protected.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend with blessings.

Don't touch my carrots

Hello dear readers,

For the ten small dome show cases, posted about in my previous post,  I wanted at least one with an Easter scene.  By the way, I found out that the cases actually serve for cupcakes and other sweets. (Has to be a very small cupcake.)

I made the little tree, the bunny and the carrots.  I think I'll make another one to keep for myself.

This is my Easter bunny guarding his carrots.  He's enjoying his meal, in fact he is a chubby, jolly fellow who loves to eat.

Eight more cases to fill....... Next week to give them away.  Most of them will show flower arrangements.

A warm welcome to all my new followers.  Thank you for your comments.

I wish all my dear readers lovely days of spring and blessings
