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).

Hi! My name is Dominique and I'm lucky enough to be the wife to my True Love and mother to a little girl and a little boy. I grew up in the Midwest but have loved living in NC, our new home. I'm actually an Industrial Engineer by schooling, but am now a domestic engineer(Stay-at-home-Mom) and feel very blessed to have this job. I have always loved the challenge in making the most of things...whether it's figuring out that a filing cabinet , a $10 piece of countertop and a few scraps of wood can be turned into a desk, that a curtain sheer, some ribbon, and a square piece of fabric can be transformed into an Elsa-like dress, or how to provide an interesting lunch for my little girl who is in a peanut free classroom. I love to figure things out and to create. I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I hope that my posts will inspire you to create. I hope that with my posts you will see that They Will Love Your Effort, whether things turn our perfect or not;-)
