Greek yogurt cup topiary

Check this out. I am preparing for a kids sculpture class I will be teaching in Fall/winter. So I looked around my house to see what recycled reusable supplies I have that I can make sculpture from. These are Greek Yogurt cups from Wegemans. First I hot glued the first two cups base to base then glued the center cups rim to rim. I had to apply several coats of paint in order to cover the text printed on the cup.I think all and all it was six coats of paint. Note: If you use the Cobani yogurt cups they have a label that you can peel off,no text to paint over.The topiary part is a standard four inch Styrofoam ball and the silk flowers are from the dollar store hot glued on. Great fall decoration!
