Great news! the craftsayings archive forum is back up online. http://t.co/0sfpxMeX
Has anyone seen little potpourri bears? I haven't made one so these directions are VERY vague. I'll try to make one and post directions with pic or maybe someone else would like to??!! :)
Cut a circle from tulle, fill the center with potpourri and gather into a ball. This potpourri ball becomes his tummy. Glue poms onto it for head, arms, legs and ears. Glue animal eyes, white nuzzle and tiny black pom nose onto face. Then if desired you can decorate with hats, bouquets, etc. Glue a hanger if desired. Hang on a Christmas tree, on a shelf peg or in a closet to freshen
Yeah, I got a picture! Mema sent me this darling little bear's pic. She looks a bit frazzled because the cat had some fun batting her around. Really! But she survived and she is adorable! That is a dried flower in the potpouri in the front of her belly. Thanks Mema!
