My JellyBean Tree

Easter has kinda "snuck" up on me. I just decorated our store and our house and returning to my favorite HObby Lobby to get a few more "touches" found me wondering where in the WORLD did everything go???

So, I saw this idea somewhere don't remember where so I made one for our store! Pretty easy...just taking the time to sit down and finish it. It took me about three days...not working on it straight mind you but trying to fit it in when I could.

WE had some glorious days here during the beginning of the week where I was able to paint two chairs for my kitchen table and paint these styrofoam balls pink for this project! Now its freezing and I have a cold but hoping to be on the mend soon!

So, I took about two bags of jelly beans per tree...foam base to secure, spanish moss and of course my trusty glue gun and a cute ribbon.

Here is my finished project...I think it turned out cute enough to be "store worthy". So far people really like it at our store!

I'm now going to make one with Pink gumballs for Ellie's pinkalicious party!
