This pretty centerpiece from Jeffery Rudell over at CraftStylish http://www.craftstylish.com/profile/Jeff_Rudell is a snap to make and will brighten any luncheon table or brunch buffet.

Step 1: Materials

Begin with styrofoam standards (18" tall, available at Michael's, A.C. Moore, or other craft suppliers) and a box of Paper Cocktail Parasols (available at larger grocery stores).
how many umbrellas do u need for one plant ?<br>
You should figure between 50-60 umbrellas per standard. Less if you open the umbrellas more fully, more if you open them less fully. I used a box of 144 umbrellas and had a handful left over after completing this project.<br><br>Good luck.<br><br>Jeffery
This looks awesome! Can't wait to try it! :D
Simple & pretty! Nice!
I like that =]<br/>
Very creative. 4.5/5 Wonder what this would look like with other shapes of Styrofoam.
very nice, from a way back it almost looks like a cactus.
very interesting...i like the teapot too...5/5
I want that tea pot.
That's and Earl of Dundonald teapot and I just love it. You can find them online on eBay at times. If you want, there are also a number of much less expensive knock offs (I have one of those, too) that are made in China and are somewhat more practical simply because they are quite a bit sturdier than the &quot;authentic&quot; models.
