How long have you searched for a decorative piece of coral? How many clams did you have to shell out to get your hands on it (Get it? Coral...clams..."shell out" - hahahaha...ha)?
I've been searching for the ever elusive fake coral paperweight for about a year. No luck - at least no where near my price range. What's a crafty girl to do? Spray paint something, of course!
A totally craft-worthy piece of plaster-like coral from PetCo. Yay!
But, do you know how difficult it is to find a piece of coral at a pet store? Way more difficult than I thought it would be!
