I LOVE to give flowers after a performance! My parents and grandparents always did that for me growing up and I loved how special it made me feel. When I was in high school, my Dad started to make me personalized bouquets…he’d take fake flowers and hot glue relevant things in the center. What an awesome thing to do<3. Why not continue that for my children.
My daughter's school was doing their spring performance this afternoon (open dress rehearsal) and this evening. I wanted to do something do something special for her. She was playing a speaking worm so I wanted it to be personalized. Thank you Dollar Tree.
I grabbed a fake bunch of daisies and then started to walk the toy section just thinking….then I saw tiny snakes…my daughter's class is worms. Instantly I thought about how these tiny worms could be transformed.
When I got home, I immediately cut the little tongues and eyes off of the snakes. I then painted them brown and covered them in Modge Podge (thank you to my aunt who taught me that Modge Podge will stick paint to almost anything:-).
When I coated these worms with Modge Podge I painted them on aluminum foil so that they didn’t stick;-)
I then wrote a sweet note to my little worm. How could I resist?
Trusty hot glue gun in hand, I glued everything to the centers of the flowers:-). Super easy!
I also glued ribbon to the base of the flowers to make it look ‘finished’.
Ok, I put the flowers in my PURSE until after her performance. I didn’t have to worry about my son picking apart the flowers. I didn’t have to worry about crushing/breaking the flowers, and best of all…my daughter LOVED THEM<3
This project cost about $2!!!!!
You can do this for musicals, with music notes glued to the centers. You can do this for a soccer player with soccer ball pictures glued to the center. You can do this for a theatre set crew member and glue light bulbs into the center (thank you Dad).
Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3
