Last spring I was invited to a baby shower and was so excited to finally be able to have a chance to make this! I had found a picture, on Pinterest most likely, but there were no instructions on how to make it. So I figured I'd give it a whirl! Here's how I did it.
A wide mouth vase
Gifts to go inside
Tulle (from a roll)
Cylinder shaped styrofoam
First, I went to the store and found a large mouth vase and the goodies I wanted to fill it with. A little tip on what goodies you pick: try to get things that are the same height or a few that can be stacked to have a flat top. Mine didn't so I rolled up a rectangle piece of heavy cardstock and put it on top of the box to make it level. Also, try not leave a good amount of space (2-3") for the styrofoam base of the bouquet.
To make the flower part of the bouquet I cut the lollipop sticks into a few different shorter lengths. I rolled the diapers up, wrapped the elastic around the diaper (close to one end not in the center) and then put the stick in the same end. When I did this the second time I used sticks from a fruit arrangement I had received and they worked better because they had little ridges to help the diaper from slipping down the stick. You could also use hot glue to help them from sliding, but I wanted the diapers to be usable.
Finally, tye a bow around the vase with your ribbon. :)
I love how this turned out! So cute!
