Easter Topiary Project from HobbyLobby!

I saw this adorable
Easter Topiary Project
from HobbyLobby
 and immediately thought "How Cute!" 
It will sit on my porch along with my spring wreath from last year. 
I have some paint and Sparkle Glaze on hand, plus eggs and spring silk flowers leftover from last year. 

Not being a good painter, I will decoupage on designs instead of painting. 
I have some Easter themed scrap paper and stickers in my stash to use. 
Also, I will try to wire up my own beaded sprays as I have tons of larger inexpensive beads and floral wire.

Gorgeous, but Easy, Beaded Rainbow Votive Project!

Check out this gorgeous free project from the Creative Women Newsletter!  

It starts with a small glass votive holder that is covered in pre-strung bugle beads that are glued on to cover it.  I am thinking they would make really nice small gifts.

 I already have several of the glass votive holders on hand and I am sure there is a large stash of bugle beads in my bead stash.  I plan to string the beads a few evenings while watching TV, and then assemble the first one on a weekend when I have time to sit down and enjoy crafting.
