  1. Meredith says

    I would love to make the candy play dough. It would be perfect to give to my younger siblings to use (and eat!).

  2. Frances says

    I would be most interested in making the dessert stand and the candle holders as I love decoupage. I also love making candles, so the decoupage candle holders project along with making the candles shown there would be fun.

    Love that dessert stand! I’ve always wanted to have a bunch of different cake stands and such … they are so great to have on the buffet table to raise up some of the food and make it look more interesting. Now I won’t have to wait until I find just the perfect stands because I can make my own!

    Love the St. Patrick’s day table setting, too … she did a fabulous job making it look so fun. Bet her kids thought she could do magic, waking up to that after their nap LOL!

  4. Ellen Smith says

    I’ll probably try the candy play dough with my kids. My 3yo is looking with me and tells me she wants the eggs for her birthday (months away) maybe she’ll get lucky for Easter 🙂

  5. Wendy says

    I would like to try and make the Kids Grass Seed Egg Buddy. I have an almost 3 yr old and we would love to make one of these, especially with spring coming he could be in charge of his little sprouts! Can’t wait to try this!!

  6. Hannah B says

    I’m a sucker for paper flowers. I was making carnations out of kleenex when I was a kid and seeing that one made me feel very nostalgic. I think it’s time to get out the tissue paper and get busy!

  7. Sue D says

    I would like to make the candy play dough and the grass seed egg buddies with my granddaughter.

  8. nik says

    The Kids’ Grass Seed Egg Buddies are really appealing…maybe they could grow little violets too? They’re so sweet!

  9. catnap says

    The two decoupaged crafts appeal to me the most, and I lean towards the candle holders as my favorite. Great tutorial; lots of possibilities with this idea.

  10. herblady says

    I love the candle holder, the cake plate and the flowers. Instant party! The cake plate is my favorite.

  11. says

    Think I’m gonna go with the cress eggheads – my little boys will love that project for Easter coming up.

  12. Ann says

    Thanks for posting the link to Modge Podge Rocks blog. Can’t wait to try a dessert plate and stand!
