Ice Cream Flower Buckets

I made our Easter dessert!  Aren't they great!?!  I love the way they turned out!  They are filled with ice cream with crushed Oreos on top!

Oreos, crushed using Magic Bullet or Blender

Stapler (with staples)

How I Did It
I prepared my dirt in my buckets...
1.  I set out my buckets.

2.  I took my shortcake circles and put them in the bottom of each bucket.

3.  I cut straws so that and stuck them in the shortcake so that the top of the straw would be just over the top of the bucket.

4.  I filled the buckets with ice cream 3/4 inch from the top.  This doesn't need to be pretty.  

5.  I crushed Oreos in my Magic bullet and spooned them on top of the ice cream to appear as dirt.

6.  I stored the buckets in the freezer until it was time to serve.

I made my flowers...
1.  I cut out flowers on cardstock with my Silhouette.
I used a cute 3D flower design. 

2.  I stapled pipe cleaner to the back of the flower.  I made sure the straight piece of he staple was overlapping the pipe cleaner.  I staple three times in different directions so that it could easily slip off.

3.  I punched out the same color circles with a circle punch and glued it to the center to cover the staples on the backside of the flowers.

4.  I punched out yellow circles with a circle punch and glued it to the center to cover the staples on the front side of the flowers.


 5.  I trimmed the stems to the height that I wanted and set a side until serving time.

 To Serve
1.  I placed each of the flowers into the straw of bucket.
