Flower Bouquet Center Pieces

Now that people know I can make things I have be recruited to help with the center pieces for a pot luck we do for our classified staff at my school. I came up with the theme of spring so that I could make flower center pieces. I normally do them in vases but they were out at the dollar store and I saw these cute baskets. They are a little harder to work with but cute. I had to improvise on how to get the flowers to stand up. I ended up sticking the wood into a starburst and using hot glue to tack them down. It worked well. I received a lot of compliments.

Again I used Plantin for the flowers and Penny Black stamps to decorate the baskets. I colored the stamps with my prism colored pencils.
