Dressed up Hydrangeas

I love the packages of Prima hydrangeas we got in a couple of our Swirlydoo kits...The little flower is so beautiful..Well it got me thinking..Can they get any cuter!!?? Well I started fooling around with the flowers while I was doing Manda's challenge LO...And this is what I came up with.

Paint the whole flower with Rock Candy Stickles...Then while the flower is still wet, just dip the very edges into Martha Stewarts micro beads...Now you have these beautiful little gems...And on my next day off (Wednesday..poo) I am going to go buy some of those great sugar crystals!! Some of the new Prima flowers comes with this already on them...They sparkle so beautifully. But I love the micro beads. The package I bought has so many yummy colors!!. I will create a tutorial with a variety of styles. Now go forth and stickle and dip!!


  1. This is so gorgeous...I have never heard of micro beads before...but they do dress these flowers beautifully.

  2. LOL....those are beautiful!! I didn't know MS had those cute tiny beads.
