Lalaloopsy Flowerpot Decorations

Many of you already know my that my daughter (and me) are obsessed with Lalaloopsy Dolls. I've been meaning to post this project that I made for her Lalaloopsy birthday party for a while, so here it is.

Materials needed:
clay pots
acrylic paints
cardstock (various colors)
buttons (various colors and sizes)
green moss
Styrofoam ball
dowels (painted green)
punches, cricut, sizzix dies (any flower cutouts)

Paint pots with acrylic paint. Let dry. When completely dry, add sealer and let dry again. In the meantime, cut out various flowers with any dies or machine or punches you have. Layer the flower on each other for more dimension. Add buttons to the middle of the flowers. Glue the flower to the painted dowels. Glue more buttons on the pot. Glue the moss to the top of the Styrofoam ball and place it into the pot. Dip the bottom of the dowels in glue and push them into the Styrofoam ball. These make great centerpeices for a party or decor for a playroom.

Hurricane Sandy affected many people. Anything we can do to help those that have suffered losses would be greatly appreciated. Living on Long Island during this difficult time, I'm grateful that my family is safe and my home was left undamaged. Although it was difficult to go without power for 10 days, I had to keep reminding myself that the important thing was that I had my family with me and a roof over my head! Unfortunetaly for many, this was not the case. So, in the month of November, Close To My Heart will donate $1 to for every Stamp of the Month set sold to support Red Cross relief efforts for those areas of the US severely affected by Hurricane Sandy. In November, you will also get 50% off another stamp set when you buy the stamp of the month for just $5. Visit my website to place your orders today!
