a candy corn craft…

I’m the annoying customer that walks through a shop and looks at things and thinks, “I could totally make that.” SO, Loo bear, Pman and I were in a little cute shop downtown last week when I saw really cute candy corn topiaries. They were cute, over-priced…and I could totally make that. I can also use these year after year after year…and it was a mindless, easy craft that’s good for your self-esteem as it’s totally hard to mess up:)

This is what you’ll need…(you can buy everything at Hobby Lobby–but I’m sure your local craft store should have these things.

The pots are cheaper at Home Depot. And the green grass stuff…this is great to have a bunch on hand. I bought this to decorate my mantle for Easter–and it’s still up there:) It’s great filler for craft projects like this one. You’ll need floral foam to fit in the bottom of the pot to keep your sticks standing firmly.

And wa-la! Now I just need to make the other one, but I kinda think one is fun too. This would also make a cute little gift for a friend…so maybe that’s where my second one will go:)

Hope y’all are having a good day. We had a “trip debriefing” for Rico’s trip last week with the team members, their wives and Kevin–it was good to process together…and truly SO encouraging to hear what the Lord is doing at Wiphan Care Ministries. There are some exciting things in the works–and Richard and I are just so excited. Don’t be surprised if you see us heading across the globe with our whole crew in tow in a few years;). Just saying…don’t be surprised:)

You’ve been on my heart lately and I will admit that I too have seen The Young Family in Zambia (for like, perhaps, longer than a traditional visit). =) LOVE your crafty side and the warmth of your home.
