Good morning everyone,
Today it's my turn again to show a "technique" with Oddball Art Stamps
As Easter is only a few days away, I decided it would be the perfect time to share an easter floating cup with you
So here's my finished project using the bunny from image:
Doesn't she just fit perfect between those eggs?
So what do you need?
Cup and dish
Fake (plastic) leafs
styrofoam easter eggs
Fork (cheap/old/secondhand/thin weak)
So here are the cups that I found at the little secondhand shed that belongs to our church.
The money they earn, will be used for renovation and repairs to the church.
I went to the shop to get a new set of forks.
I had some thin forks in the drawer, so figured, I would use those as they're pretty easy to bend and just get a new set that are less "flimsy"
So ended up with 4 new forks for €1.49
Bend the fork and glue it down on the dish.
Hold it into place untill to glue cools and hardens, then glue the top inside the cup.
I forgot to make a photo of that, but you should glue down the fork onto the dish, the way im holding the fork in this picture.
I've bought one of those plastic flower wreaths at the church as well.
As you can see on the picture, I've already used almost half of it, but created 2 floating cups, so thats 4 cups for 40 cents :P
I did wash it first when I came home
So into the shower, rinsed the dust off
Placed into a bucket with cleaning soap.
Gave it a good wash, rinsed again and left it to dry over night
So next you take some branches with leafs of the wreath and just start glueing them down onto the fork and dish
Just keep adding, untill you have basicly covered the fork and you're happy with how it looks.
(do not forget to place some leafs on the back of the fork)
Please be carefull when using a hotglue gun, I've managed to loose my fight with my gluegun 2 times while creating this project!
Now once you're happy, it's time to start adding those easter eggs!!!!
Just randomly start gluein them down, untill again....... you're happy with how it looks.
Pick an image of your choice.
Gave it a funkie matchin color and seated her in between the eggs
