For our craft contest, eight bloggers turned regular objects into beautiful home accents in three steps or fewer and for less than $5.
MATERIALS: 36 yogurt cups, spray paint for plastic, straw wreath, hot-glue gun.
1. Apply hot glue to lip of 1 cup and hold it against outer rim of wreath until it adheres. Repeat until you have 12 cups evenly spaced around outer rim of wreath.
2. Create second ring inside previous one, positioning each new cup in between 2 cups in previous ring, lip against wreath, and adhering to wreath with glue until you have 12 evenly spaced cups.
3. Create third ring by positioning remaining cups in a tight circle with bottoms facing straight up and adhering to wreath with glue.
4. Spray-paint entire wreath with a coat of paint. Let dry and add a second coat, if needed.
