I don’t know how long bamboo usually lives, but between my boyfriend and I, it’s lucky if it lasts a few months.  When I asked my boyfriend what he wanted for Christmas, he told me to “be creative” because he knows I live on a budget.  This is what I came up with: the eternally lucky bamboo.

I dripped candle wax over paper towel rolls for the base of the bamboo.  The leaves are plastic leaves cut from a branch in the Hobby Lobby flower department and though you can’t see both colors very well in the ceramic bowl, there are blue and dark purple glass beads in a square bowl.  The beads are from Pets Mart and the bowl from Hobby Lobby.

Lucky bamboo you can’t kill.  Merry Christmas.
