I have done a few bridal showers, baby showers, and dinner parties in my time… so coming up with unique party favors is one of my favorite things to do. This idea for a potted flower picture would work great for a bridal shower or a summer luncheon. It’s super easy to do and costs about $3 per favor. You can personalize each place marker with your guest’s photo, or use photos of the guest of honor.
Here’s what you’ll need:
*Circle Cutter (or you can cut it by hand)
*Stem Wire (found in the floral section of craft stores)
*Foam Ball (also in floral section)
*Small Flower Pot
* Sheet of Green Felt
First, place a small amount of glue on the bottom of the foam ball and place it inside the flower pot.
Then, cut a small sqaure out of your felt sheet and glue it over the foam ball.
Then, cut a 1 inch x 4 inch (approx) strip of felt out. Cut fringe into the strip and glue it inside the flower pot.
Measure the ribbon to fit around the top of the flower pot, cut it and use a small amount of glue to make sure it stays in place. Tie a ribbon in the front.
Cut your picture out and glue it to the front of the silk flower.
Coil the stem wire. You want to make sure that you have at least 2 tight coils. You don’t want to many coils because the picture won’t lay in the coil very well.
Put the flower/picture into the coil and stick the stem into the middle of your flower pot.
That’s it! You have a personalized party favor that guests can take home.
