Where do can you get styrofoam eggs and blocks for cookie bouquets at a discount? I buy them now a Michaels and Joann's but they're pricey. Does anyone buy them online in bulk?
I have bought mine at Walmart. They don't have as many shapes to choose from but they are cheaper. Not sure if there is some place you can order them from or not. Maybe someone else will know that??
If you have a Dollar tree, they often have floral foam (oasis). It is a lot softer than styrofoam, but I use it all the time.
I use it also, from Dollar Tree. I was at a store today looking at foam balls but I seem to have luck with the kind from Dollar Tree.
Thanks everyone. My dollar store is pretty weak in supplies. I thought about using the floral foam but wasn't sure if it would work. I was hoping there would be a place on the internet like papermart.com that supplied styrofoam.
I use the dry green floral foam (for dry arrangements - the Oasis type for wet use is much more expensive!).
Hobby Lobby is the cheapest place to get it at regular price, and I stock up when they have the printable 40% coupons and there's nothing else I need that week, LOL! The 6 pack of the bricks seems to be the least expensive way to buy it, at least around here.
I also use the green foam. It comes in a 6 pack- they are like bricks.
i get them from Michaels for $1.97 a 6 pack! It goes a long way!!!
I also use the green floral foam. It's really, really cheap if you can find someone to donate their Michaels coupons to you!!
Hmm, the green foam might be the way to go. Right now I'm paying almost $3.00 each for my styrofoam egg and 6x6 block.
Oh my goodness!!
Go green and save you some green!!!
(ok, it sounded better in my head!!)
Hee Hee, that was a good try! Yes, I think I'll be going green.
I buy the green 6-pack blocks at Michael's. It's cheaper than buying the cases from my floral wholesale place. Whenever it's on sale, or Michael's has a 30% off entire purchase coupon I stock up. I usually have shoppers staring at my twenty packs in my cart, toppling over as I make my way to the register.
I only buy my styrofoam at dollar general or the dollar tree stores. Everywher else its pretty expensive.
