Is there a cure for boredom?

So, I've been working on making over a thrifty coffee table and yesterday while waiting for paint to dry, I was terribly bored! Yep, even with two little boys(who were napping) and lots of housework to be done, I was still bored. So, I came with took me about 20 minutes. I had a few pieces of colorful blue and green paper that came out of a handbook that I no longer needed.
I made a few pretty rosettes.
*I'm sure everybody by now knows how to make these, but if you don't, let me know and I can do a tutorial for you.

Picked up a branch out of the backyard.

Then I hot glued the rosettes to the branch.(can you tell I was painting, check out my white fingers) Stuck it into my cheese dome....

and there you go! Simple, easy and FREE!
