Just in case you missed it!!

We live in Idaho.  Right now it is 30 degrees outside but the news says that it feels like 14.  I agree with them, it's COLD!! So we needed to bring some sunshine into our homes and came up with this fabulous concoction of lemons and daisies and happiness!!  First thing you need is to gather your supplies. You'll need a bucket, or pot of some kind, some moss, green floral dry foam and a styrofoam ball, a bouquet of fake daisies, some fake lemons, a candlestick and a hot glue gun.
Alrighty now the first thing you'll do is fill your pot with the green foam.  Feel free to cut pieces out to fit the pot best.  Next you will attach the candlestick onto the top of the foam.  You may want to insert a dowel here to keep it steady if it is going to be in a high-traffic area (let's be honest, is there really such thing as a non-high-traffic area when you have kids?)
And finish off the structure by gluing the styrofoam ball to the top of the candlestick.  Now you will take the hot glue gun and cover all of the foam and styrofoam with the moss.
Now after it is completely covered with moss, cut the daisies off of the bouquet and hot glue them onto the ball along with the lemons, letting the moss show through too.
After you have them on where you like, cut off some leaves and attach one behind each daisy.  The last step is to add a pretty bow onto your pot.  We used a cute fabric strip but you can use ribbon or raffia or jute or whatever else you have laying around your house.  And Wha-la!
Can you feel the sunshine radiating from it?  I swear it feels like about 90 degrees around these parts.  Ok, so maybe I just cranked up the heat a bit, but I won't judge.  The point is, it looks cute, right?  So go on, get your craft on.
