Holy Wow..it’s not a sham!


Sham Wow’s!
Yep!  Those crazy, orange, infomercial rags.
This is the guy that tries to sell them to you.
You know what I’m talking about now..right?
Well, I headed to the dollar store last night trying to find orange colored stuff.

An orange noodle?
Tried and failed!
Sham wow’s-worked like a gem!
What for?

See!
P1010285
What? You never thought to use sham wow’s to make carrots?
With a little help from some of this stuff,
P1010286
I should have taken a picture of HOW I did it, but that would have been way too easy!!
So, I get to just tell you.
I promise, it’s sooo easy!
I cut the sham wow’s into4 squares per wow.
At least I guess that is what you would call a single sham wow..
anyway.
After I cut the squares, I hot glued them into cones.
Just like I did with paper when I made my ice cream cones at Christmas.
Then I shoved them as full as I could get them with good old, polyfil!
Then….I EMBELISHED!
Because, really, heaven forbid I leave them alone.
It’s me!
Remember, I have a problem with leaving well enough alone.
So, they went from these…

to these…

which eventually turned into this…

When life gives you sham wow’s from the dollar store, you turn them into carrots and then make them into a wreath.  Of course!
This is how I did it.
I bought some of these lovely green, grassy things from the dollar store.

Then I added some to a stick wreath that my dead moose that hangs in the garage, was holding for me.
(really, I use my husbands prized moose head to hold off to the extra lampshades and wreaths.)
Genius, right? I totally think so!
Added some green stuff, like this..
P1010298
Simple, right?
Told you!
Then I picked my favorite carrots from the bunch..
Ha! And hot glued them to the wreath
P1010299
Finished!
P1010307
oh, and may have taken the pic at night because…
Lame..I know..sorry!
I will take a better pic,in the day, another day.
Cause I love you all!!
Make these! They will make you happy!
Promise!
Plus-they will cost you a Dollar!!
Even your husband will love this idea!
Enjoy!
Check out these parties!
