Purple and Gold Wedding Inspiration Board

Recently I had the pleasure of completing an inspiration board for a close friend. Her sister is getting married and in the excitement of her day, I wanted to develop a visual for her. Check out the board below.

Glittered Safari Animals Centerpiece

 I completed the glittered safari animals for the Zoo Crew Baby Shower. I think they turned out pretty well. I'm excited about it! Check out the before and after pictures. I told you the steps I was following from the previous post here. It took me approximately 2 1/2 days. Mostly because of drying time and my work schedule. I suspect that you could probably finish this in 3 steps over 2 days. 

 I started with a grey plastic elephant, Hippo and Giraffe from the dollar section of Michael's
I used blue and green paint for plastic(purchased at Michaels) and painted the entire animal the same color as the glittered paint that I used.

 Then I sprayed them with Krylon glitter paint. Followed by Krylon clear sealant. 

Next I drilled a small hole in the bottom (slightly off centered due to the face portion of the animal being top heavy) of the animal and put a wooden dowel in the bottom. 

 Target typically sells the buckets for 2.50. I placed 2 foam squares from the dollar tree at the bottom of the bucket. I also got the grass from the dollar tree and stuck it into the green foam squares.

Check out the finish product below. I think this is the beginning of a great centerpiece.
