My Pear Urns!

Well I finally got them done last night. They are not exactly how I want them but when you only have your local Wal-Mart craft section to work with, this is what you get. 
So, the next time I get out of this puney little no-where-to-shop-for-cute-crafts town, I am picking up some bigger gingham ribbon, because I just know they are screaming for something a little wider. 
I also might change out the twiggy stuff but that's another day. I will be changing out the pears for pumpkins come fall as these little babies are ever so versatile! 

Anyway, 1 project down & many more to go. 
Soon I will be tackling large furniture pieces with a paint brush & black paint. 
I'm pretty sure that I have Lloyd scared out of his tighty whiteys & wondering where he went wrong with me. Trust me I will be posting pictures of the new paint project.

My thanks go out to Joys of Home for inspiring my total copy of her cute urns. 
Granted I love♥ her urns more,
but you gotta admit I am so good at copying cute ideas!
Pin It


  1. It's okay that you copied my pear urns, cuz now I'm going to steal your "I'm a skinny girl trapped in a curvy body" line. Love It!
    Oh, and you did copy one other thing of mine. I also have a son, older than yours, with the name of Parker.
    I'm flattered!!!

  2. Hi there! Found you...somehow. Just wanted to say that we have LOTS in common. I love movies, I love 80's music, and I even made VERY similar gifts for my kids' teachers. We're friends, and we didn't even know it! ;-)

  3. super cute! Don't u just love creative people who allow you to "Borrow" their ideas!
    Super Super cute! i don't think that they need wider gingham. I like them that way. I think if you put any wider, it would detract from the cuteness.
    I know what you mean about the black pait. Just wait until you see my post tomorrow. You will want to use that paint even more! Ha!! I have learned that it is always easier to ask forgiveness than permission. DuH! That is why my marraige has survived as long as it has!

  4. They are really cute. I love the twigs.

  5. darling urns!
