Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Holiday Centerpiece

   Mom is in the hospital, again. I thought that I would make a festive centerpiece to help cheer her up. She has been so sick. We made so many holiday plans but now they will have to be re-scheduled. So I made this to help her over a very disappointing time.



   This was made from floral bushes and stems that I brought at The Dollar Store. I glued a plastic tray over an upside down plastic bowl to make the elevated base. The rest were poinsettia bushes that I clipped apart to make it easier to place them. Once upon a time, I used to use yards of floral tape on centerpieces. Now I use a low temp glue gun, it saves so much time! Mom loves cardinals so I found a place to perch two among the branches. The electric candle is one that I brought home from the farm for her. I knew that she would love to see it used in a centerpiece to brighten her room. I love The Dollar Store. This entire centerpiece cost only $11.00. I bet you couldn't buy one like this anywhere for that.

Take Care
Kathy
