Reworked Arrangement

I bought this arrangement at Goodwill....

I didn't get the whole glittery pinecones and christmas greenery with Daffodiles????
Is it just me? So I ripped everything out. I had to use wire cutters because whoever did the original designe used all of the hot glue in four counties. I am just sayin'.



Painted the wire black and watched the remaining styrofoam melt away.



Now to get rid of that silvery color. I know silvery in not a real word, but it does describe it perfectly.
Here comes the HW spray paint.



At this point I could really see the vision and got so excited I forgot to take pictures of the rest of the process. I added a little glaze and let her rip.
Tada!


Spanish moss, birds nest, eggs, and a bird were added.
Isn't it so sweet. I will never be able to sell anything on Etsy because I
want to keep it all....
