Fancy Frugal Life: Goodwill Candlesticks to Easter Topiaries

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Goodwill Candlesticks to Easter Topiaries










Apparently there is a theme with Goodwill candlesticks on my blog! Maybe it should be called Look at All The Cool Stuff You Can Make with Candlesticks Blog.....I have been wanting to try to make some topiaries and when I saw these cute boy and girl bunny candlesticks for $1.99 each I knew I had my chance!















I bought some plain pots at the craft store and sprayed them pink.


















Then I bought two 6 inch Styrofoam balls and cut almost a whole yard of felt circles. This is about 4 (kiddie) naps worth of work! I used the same technique to make the felt ruffle heart wreath last month. You just fold the circles in quarters and pin away! The Idea Room is where I originally saw this method.









I put two green kid cups upside down in the pots because I didn't have any floral foam. I placed the candlesticks on top and then put moss around the edges. That was it! So simple.



I think these look super cute with the rest of my Easter decorations! And fingers crossed my kids haven't tried to destroy them :)
