Buttons and Bows...

Here's my make for the Let's Craft and Create challenge - Buttons and Bows.
I told you I had the Mod Podge bug. I've used old book paper to Mod Podge a terracotta plant pot - I gave it a coat of white acrylic paint first. I made the topiary using a styrofoam ball as the base and added lots of flowers die cut from handmade paper to give them some texture. I added pearly buttons to the flower centres and fixed them to the ball with pearl head pins. I thoroughly enjoyed making this, a nice change from cards.
You could be seeing some more of these, I've got 4 more styrofoam balls, it was cheaper to buy 5 than just 1 and I do love a bargain!
I only wish I could get a decent photo of it - it's really dull here today I might try again later.
Check out the Let's Craft and Create blog for some more 'Buttons and Bows' projects from the DT, and don't forget you get a fortnight to join in the fun and there's a lovely prize on offer for one lucky entry. We'd love to see you over there.
