Cabbage and Flowers~The Dollar Store To the Rescue

I have seen several ideas for making cabbage for a spring arrangement.  I had some paper clay on hands and decided to make a cabbage for our Easter table.

The paper clay was placed over a bowl which had been covered with plastic.  A real cabbage leaf was pressed into the clay to mimic the cabbage.  It took about 2 days for it to become completely dry.  A leaf green paint was applied and then it was sealed with varnish.

A trip to the dollar store was in order.  A glass vase was found for one dollar and then bunnies on a stick and flowers round out the look.  It makes a bright addition to our table.  Thanks so much for looking and have a great Easter!
