You are aware that I can't leave well enough alone.
Remember when I said I really wanted those faux coral votive holders, but couldn't find faux corals that weren't immensely overpriced? It annoyed the heck out of me.
I wanted corals, and I jolly well GET what I want!
This post saved my day... and my bank account. My coral was not going to be faux, it was going to be daux!
Vivienne @ The V Spot created a brilliant, most real- looking coral from salt dough, and rather than explaining the whole procedure on here myself, I politely ask you to hop over and check out how she did it. You'll thank yourself for reading her post, it's not only immensely creative, but LOL funny, too!
My version is not as pretty and dainty as hers, look:
I tried to be extra- clever and house my coral in a shell. Erm... well, anybody with a few brain cells left between their ears could have predicted that a rounded shell will not feel inclined to sit up nice and straight with a shedload of salt dough in it!! But you know what? I don't care. I have got my coral and I will dang well enjoy it.
Don't forget to visit Sunny- she's so crafty, she makes people!
