Over the weekend, Avery and I went to a baby shower for my friend who is having a girl and a 2 year old birthday party for one of Avery’s Besties and I made one of these for each of them:
This was what I had in my head when I thought of the other project, but didn’t have the materials for, however this time I was able to pick up everything I needed before hand I was able to execute what was in my head.
- Flower pot
- Thin dowels
- Floral tap
- Paper shreads
- The clips, either bought or homemade, that you want to be the flowers
First I put the foam in the bottom of the flower pot, I bought two packages from the dollar store because I wasn’t sure how much I would need but it turns out I didn’t even use a whole package. I cut one piece in half to be in the bottom of each pot and then added a full piece on top of that. The corners were shaved off a bit as I pressed it into the put until it was flush with the top.
Then I placed the dowels in where I wanted them, rearranging if needed. When I pulled them out, I held them where I would need to start with the floral tape and wrapped around, pulling the tape as I went, you have to stretch it out for it to stick to itself.
Once they were done, I placed them back in the foam.
Added the paper shreds all around (I couldn’t find green).
And clipped the bows on!
I got rave reviews from the recipients and guests so I think it went over pretty well! Plus, because I made the flowers it was an affordable gift as well!
