in Normally, when the urge to do crafts hits, I try to wait a day. It might go away. Unless you have a really well-stocked crafts area, it's going to require a trip to Ben Franklin or WalMart.
I came across a couple of sweet teacups at a yard sale, and just couldn't leave them be. I do not need any more teacups. However, leaving them there seemed wrong. I had a recollection of an 80's fad where "teacup bouquets" were all the rage. I loved those things and thought well, there you go.
Making them did, of course, require the purchase of floral foam and floral tape, both of which I found at Ben Franklin in Hilo. WalMart did not have the kind that holds water, and you need that for this craft, unless you want to use silk flowers.
Cut a chunk of the floral foam and put it into the teacup. Anchor it with floral tape. Then, find something to poke the foam with -- I found that a bamboo skewer was perfect. A small straw would work, too. Cut some flowers and fauna, and you're all set. Keep scissors or snips handy to trim as you go. Get the foam wet, and start poking. Stick a flower in a hole. Deliver to a good friend.
