30 Sucks Bouquet

Last week I came home to find a surprise box filled with martha stewart craft supplies. As someone who spends far too much time fondling craft supplies (I'm kinky like that), this was pretty much a dream come true.

Of course I wanted to try them right away and I had just the project. Completely inspired (or stolen!) by this project from sisters stuff that I ran into on pinterest, I got to work.

I started with two Martha Stewart colors (cloud and holly berry), these fabulous Martha Stewart paint dauber tops (that meant I didn't need to use any paint brushes - yea!), a small clay pot, some floral foam, 2 inch helvetica sign stickers purchased at Staples and a mix of tootsie roll pops and dumdums.

I did a very quick and rough first coat of the lighter shade on and let dry. Considered how little care and time I put in, I was happy with how it covered the clay and the color stayed true.

Using the sign stickers, I laid out the "30 sucks" around the clay pot.

Then switched the dauber from the blue color to the red and covered the pot in this bright shade. I let dry and then removed the labels to reveal the blue underneath the leters.

And there we are - a fun little surprise that will be left on a friends doorstep this week.
