Step one: Disassemble the trophy and reassemble it as desired. I played around with the pieces until I found a design that was appealing. I made two variations to show you some possibilities. Use E-6000 to glue the parts together.
Step two: Paint the entire project one color. I used a large brush and chalky finish paint.
Step three: Once it is dry, add birds, flowers, and candles. Since these could tip over easily, I suggest using battery operated candles, which are available at Dollar Tree.
I’m planning to add small pastel, plastic Easter eggs to my pink platter as a fun centerpiece. The blue candle holder is on my mantle, next to my decorated bottle. I like to decorate with unusual, unexpected items. Do you?
