Great tutorial (and THANKS for the heads-up about the hair thing!).

My photo isn't so great (the SideKick doesn't like closeups), but here tis:

Made with these beads from Auntie's Beads. Can't wait to wear it to work. Well, okay, I can, because it's work, but showing off the ring will almost make it fun. Wink

My turn. Found a glass candlestick at Michaels that works nicely as a mini-pedestal. Smiley

Thanks for the great tutorial!

Okay, so I'm basically talking to myself here. Since 14 folks read the post, I figure 14 folks were curious. Wink

Here's how it turned out:

I ended up painting the inside of the margarita glass with the perfect color glass paint (Cricket from Delta's PermEnamel) and then spray polyurethaning over the inside so it wouldn't melt when the water touched it. Coated the edge of the glass with tacky glue and rolled it in clear sparkly glitter. Cut a circle of green Oasis slightly smaller (about 1/2 inch all around) than the inside of the glass. Put it in the middle and filled the rest with shredded styrofoam, so that it'd look like chips of ice in case the paint defied me and started to run. Then filled with spider mums (they didn't have daisies or button mums in the right size) and roses, topped it off with two straws, and voila. It was a big hit, even if it didn't quite turn out like the inspiration.

Need some assistance from the Craftster masses. I'm looking to make this bouquet:

The trick is how to make the floral foam below the bouquet look like frozen margarita.

  • Does anybody know a place that sells yellowish-green floral foam? (It could happen, right?)
  • Does anybody know whether floral foam will soak up dye?
  • If those two get ruled out, how do you guys think it would turn out if I covered the inside of the glass with glass paint?

Thanks, as always, for all the great ideas!

I've got to pick up a copy of Time!

Anyhow, I finally have a Jordy I'm proud enough of to post. It's a garden tote. The tudor rose pattern was originally a t-shirt, and the bottom is nylon from a bag picked up at Goodwill (so she can put it down in the dirt). The inside is a sickeningly-sweet Mary Englebright which you can see on the handle that I put a strip of white grosgrain down. (Sounded like a good idea at the time, but ended up kinda eh.)

Lique's creation inspired me. Have a friend who recently bought a new house. Snagged said Home Depot base, trimmed it with a bandana and some hip fringe from Hobby Lobby, stuffed it with a pair of "Diva" goggles (a pair of $3 goggles from Home Depot, carefully removed from the package, berhinestoned, and returned to the package) and the Wrench notepad from Fishcakes (http://fishcakes.net/store/books.html), and voila. Instant housewarming.
