Surprise Party- DIY Centerpieces

This past weekend was my parent’s 60th Surprise Birthday Party.


I decided to make my own decorations instead of buying a bunch of flower bouquets that would eventually be thrown away after.


I started out by collecting a bunch of class bottles and jars (which is actually already one of my hobbies).  I then gathered all of my crafts supplies (ribbons, papers, and fake flowers) and I took out my hot glue gun and  decorated each jar with an assortment of materials.  I included a piece of Japanese printed origami paper on each jar as well.



I also made paper flowers on sticks to put into each jar.  I made these flowers by taking strips of paper and folding them like an accordion. I then taped the ends of the strip together and pushed the paper down in the center and glued it with my hot glue gun.  Unlike real flowers, these flowers can be kept forever!


I used some real flowers as well by taking one bouquet of flowers and cutting their stems and then sticking them into grapevine wreaths.  These can be hung up after and the flowers will dry naturally leaving you with a beautiful dried flower wreath.
