Easter Jelly Bean Topiary

 
Hi!  Like many of you every once in awhile I just have
a wonderful, terrible urge to craft that must be satisfied.
Mainly I like to do kitchen crafts but when holidays roll around
I also like to do candy crafts.

This styrofoam ball has been loaded with candy corn at Easter
and gum drops at Christmas.  Now I have added jelly beans for Easter.

I found the pots at Wal-Mart on clearance this past November.  I painted them a wicker white and then distressed them.  I glued the jelly beans on with hot glue and then inserted a painted dowel in the styrofoam ball and into the urn (there was already foam in it).

Cool Easter decorating idea! How fun would that be to do with the kids? Course I wonder how many extra jelly beans you would have to buy....

Debbie said...

I just have to direct my mom to this link! She makes a cute one with gum drops at Christmas, and she would agree that this jelly bean one is adorably Easter.

So cute!

Another cute, creative idea, Joni! This is such a fun time of year.

This just screams Spring! I love the pastel color of the jelly beans. What a cute urn too. It really sets the topiary off. Do the kids try and steal the candy off of it? My grandkids would!
