Hydrangea mini topiaries

Oh, how I love hydrangeas
I got a great idea from blogland-
my take is different but
 it wouldn't be right
not to mention where it came from-
Are these not adorable-you have to check out her blog, sweet little smoothie
 with the full tutorial- very creative gal!

I had a cup and saucer and a white china pot from GW
a couple added flower stems from the dollar store
 and 1/2 circles of foam from GW, as well-
I was set to go!!
I painted the foam light blue so white wouldn't pop out between the buds!
I pulled the flowers apart and glued away-
 I decided not to permanently attach them to any of the bases-

 so I can switch them up whenever I feel like it!





I love these, don't you?
I'm afraid I won't be able to stop making these-
they are addicting!!

Well,gotta fly-Claire

I'm linking up to these fun parties and many more!!
