What started as a project for kids, turned into a nice hostess gift addition.
It started as a trying out a project for my Mundo Lindo kid's after school art program. In the parking lot, outside of the craft store. (and inspired by Alisa Burke)
I bought cheap silver balls, puff paint (found in the fabric painting aisle, but works on all surfaces) and coffee (optional.)
The parking lot try out was a success, so I made some more in my studio. Remove the little hangey things.
I squirted yellow dots, and sprinkled glitter. (The paint is very goopy, when wet, and larger balls might be easier to work with.)
Then I squirted red petals to surround the sparkly yellow center. Of course, there's a million ways to design these!
I stuck them on old brushes or pencils to dry. (The mosaic pot is from the recent Mundo Lindo project.) Let them dry overnight.
Put the hangey thing back in, add a ribbon.
Since I'd been saving paper product cardboard tubes for the kids projects, I tried out another potential kid activity, toliet paper angels.
