The Gift of Thrift: Another Eruption!

I wanted to share with you a couple of photos of the final stages in the creation of the papier mâché volcanos that I made for Jonamor Decor's Senor and Jonona Amor's "Fantasy Island" wedding last month. I built and painted all 21 hot lava makers, and Jonona added streaming touches of molten red glitter for a bit of extra sizzle.

Here I am putting the bouquets together of hot-colored flowers and sparkly twigs. (Note my workwear of choice -- one of my favorite Dolly Parton t-shirts!)

And then finally, the setting, complete with red and black aquarium rock.

Truly an eruption of wedded bliss!

    Great idea, but 21? That's true love :)

  2. How creative! Eruption of wedded bliss, ha! I love it.
