Good Morning and thanks for playing along in the Helmar Blog Hop. You should have found your way here by way of Becky's Blog - to get all the details on our blog hop start at the Helmar Blog.

We each got to choose what Helmar product we wanted to highlight - - I am a girl who loves all things glitzy and blingy - so Helmar Gemstone Glue was the natural choice for me!

It goes on white, but dries COMPLETELY CLEAR. It is also washable, I enjoy adding rhinestone detailing to dishtowels for a little extra WOW - nice to not have to worry about the gems falling off!

I have created this topiary centerpiece for my Easter table to show off the Gemstone Glue.
The head of my topiary is made of muffin pan liners (from the Dollar Store) folded to look like carnations. I then brushed gemstone glue on the edges and dipped into White Clearsnap Glitter
I attached the glittered carnations to the styrofoam ball using Helmar Acid Free Glue.

I painted my terra cot pot yellow and added clear and yellow flat backed glass stones with gemstone glue. My dowel stick is wrapped in a white embossed ribbon, and I poured plaster of paris into the pot to hold my topiary.
Be sure to leave a comment here for a chance to win my favorite Helmar product - Gemstone Glue - for yourself! And don't forget at the end of the hop to hop back over to the Helmar Blog for a chance at the Grand Prize!
Now get on over to Pinky's Blog for a project that is sure to blow you away!
