Have anyone heard about Christy Nelson's monthly challenge? We get a package every month and then we have until the end to make one craft project with the supplies she provided. It is my first month but I think I did well.
This month we had leather straps, mirrors, floral wire, wreath and styrofoam beads.

I bend the wire into flowers, I blued the leather to the flowers and the mirror, and I put the styrofoam beads into the oven so it would shrink, something I experimented with, hoping it would melt, but it didn't.

I'm not sure what it's called but it's something you add to the plants to decorate it, does anyone know the name of it?


What do you think? It's the first time I have tried to do something like this.

What cute plant decor!! It looks like something you'd pay a lot of money for at a specialty garden shop. I'm really impressed with what you made out of the given ingredients. Looking at your project and the list... wow. I never would have guessed those were Styrofoam balls... I love challenges like this!

This came out great! It's amazing what you can make from just a few simple supplies.
I really really like the free form look of the flowers.
