baby face flower centerpiece vase

new year. new you?
well i dunno about that, 
but i do know there are new babies in the air!
only cuz i am helping out 
with my friend's daughter's baby shower.

she asked me for help and of course 
i said yes then she said 
there are 75 guests coming!
yikes!
i better get busy huh?

well, i did and this is what 
i came up with first:
so do you wanna know how i made it?
no?
oh well, i'm gonna show you anyway. lol

here's some of the stuff i got from michael's.
but first you gotta do this:
then grab some hot glue and,
vase face is done with baby headband and all.
wasn't that easy?
let's do the inside now.



and so you are done with little miss baby.
or are you?

i wanted some height on these so i searched and saw those tulle balloons 
on pinterest with no tutorial 
so i made one up myself.
here ya go:
the sides get all funky if you use 
just enough tulle to cover when you 
try to wrap the balloon.

just use the hot glue (low temp) to pat 
the sides down and all is good.


and OoOoOOooOoo
you are all done.
new year. new babies.
new ooo's and ahhh's.
hopefully.

  5. This is a great craft to make for someone who's home sick or someone living in a nursing home. You could change some of the decorations to match holidays as well. Thanks for sharing at the Over the Moon Link Party.
