It really is GREAT STUFF!

I am not sure if this really qualifies, but I'll give it a shot. For something really useful, check out Shannon's site, the mecca of WFMW.

Anyway, I have been having great little bursts of creativity with Great Stuff. It's that spray foam insulation, you know? Most recently, I made these are the adorable "cupcakes" for our kids' worship area at church:
Pretty simple-- a painted flower pot (79 cents at Michaels) stuffed with some crumpled newspaper. This gives a good base for the Great Stuff, which is kinda pricey. Gently squeeze and swirl. As it dries and cures, it will expand.
After it has fully cured, a couple coats of craft paint, a "sprinkle" of bugle beads, and presto! Giant cupckaes!
A girfriend at church has been toying with a sweet shoppe them for her daughter's bedroom, and this would certainly fit the bill! There are larger pictures here, if you are so inclined.

Great Stuff really lives up to its name. So far, I have used it for cupcakes, ice cream, and a rock wall. There it is, a completely unpaid endorsement. Great Stuff and a little imagination, that's what works for me!
