you can make this centerpiece!
Perfect for any occasion, especially one where gifts are involved (birthday, showers, etc.) It makes a great centerpiece for the gift table!
How's it made:
- Start with a large piece of wood or cardboard for your base. Wrap it in a paper that matches your package.
- No need to find just the right size boxes! Wrap up cheap floral foam! You can put two pieces together to make larger "boxes" or cut them to the size you need. Plus, it keeps the centerpiece light! You can find floral foam at the dollar store or even Walmart!
- Strategically stack the boxes and glue them together using hot glue. Don't forget to glue the bottom layer to the base.
- In this centerpiece, the top box is a children's shoe box. A hole was cut out of the top to to fit a small square vase, which held the roses. Small budget? Skip the flowers and just add a large bow to the top!
Fun thing to go with....
Crunch 'n Munch Cones!
Super duper easy and cheap to make! I've made these for several showers and they have been huge hits each time. Especially for showers that are later in the day or in between meal times. Makes a great snack for those that have plans for a later meal. And who doesn't like Cracker Jacks or Crunch 'n Munch?
How they are made:
Just paint a flower pot in colors to match your theme. Roll up cardstock and tape together with double sided tape. Fill each with popcorn or Crunch 'n Munch. I've added a personalized sticker on these with the baby's name.
Tip: Get your Crunch 'n Munch at the dollar store. $1 a box and one box fills up more than you think.
You'll also need some type of filler for the bottom of the pot so your cones stand up. I get the bags of fun shredded paper at the dollar store in matching colors.
