How To Make A Flower Jewelry Holder #GlueNGlitter

Today, I had a project to complete and I am very happy with the end result. Would you like to know how I created this lovely Flowered Jewelry Holder and spent less than $10? Well, you are in luck because I am going to give you step-by-step instructions.

First, you need to gather the right supplies.

I found this pot in the garden center at my local Walmart Supercenter for under $1! I thought that it would be perfect to use to plant my "flowers".

These sticks will make the perfect stems for my flowers. Also purchased for less than $1!

When I found these foam stickers, I knew I hit the jackpot. For under $6, I was able to accessorize my project exactly how I wanted.

The only other item necessary for this project was some play-doh that I already had at home.

Once you get all of the supplies together, you are ready to begin your crafting project. First, lay out the Elmer's Bi-Fold Foam Board flat on the table or other flat surface. Put a little play-doh in the bottom of your planter. This is necessary to keep the sticks in place. Then, set the planter in the center of the Elmer's board and decorate around the planter. The great thing about the foam flowers is that you can peel off the back and place the flower on the board because it already has a sticky side. Once you are ready, find some big flowers because they will be best for holding a pair of earrings. Place the flower on the end of one of the sticks and place the stick inside the play-doh that is in the planter. Do that a few more times with more sticks as desired. Put some finishing touches on the Elmer's board and your craft is complete in about half an hour!

It's easy, fun and doesn't break the bank!

This project has been compensated as part of a craft recipe project using Elmer's #collectivebias

Parents, if you love "when I grow up" costumes for your child then you're going to love this Deluxe Fire Fighter Set Costume. Turn your child into a true hero this Halloween or just get his imagination going for daily dress up play in this full set including jacket, pants, and a hood. Add our Child's Fire Chief Jr. Boots and Fire Extinguisher Costume accessory, found elsewhere on this site, and make sure he has everything he needs to combat every roaring inferno his imagination can come up with. Don't forget one of our six inch glowsticks, too, to keep him safer this Halloween! Get lots of pictures, Mom, because this is the stuff memories are made of! This traditional costume is just good, clean, wholesome fun. Don't wait for this Deluxe Fire Fighter Set costume to go up in smoke, get one for your child today!

When I first went to Costume Supercenter to look at costumes for boys I was torn on which one to get him. He loves all occupational costumes including the Mail man and Police man. Then I remembered on his first birthday we went to spend his gift card at ToysRus and he instantly wanted the firetruck and ever sense then its been all about Fire Fighters and Fire Trucks. So I got him the Deluxe Fire Fighter Set.

Disclosure: I received this costume from Costume Supercenter for free and all thoughts expressed are 100% my own.

Review & Giveaway: Of The Earth Jewelry

Here's how the Verdigris Initial Necklace is made:

Bird charm: Each bird charm starts out as simple brass and is finished with a verdigris (blue green) color which is the natural reaction to copper in the outdoors. Each bird will vary in shade of color and intensity of color. Please do not submerge your verdigris bird into water as your color will fade! Initial charm: Every copper initial goes through a handmade process for the finished look. It begins by hand punching the round charm and hammering the initial into the copper followed by a vintage patina and firing! Each initial is a standard capital letter.

I was very excited when I found out I could review and host a giveaway from Of The Earth Jewelry. I got the Initial D for my son Damien. I've worn it everyday sense I received it in the mail. It goes with everything which makes it special.

GIVEAWAY: 1 MamaKnows readers will win a
verdigris initial necklace.
