My girlfriend Karen recently asked me to help her with an upcoming church event, Sowing the Seeds of Prayer. She wanted my inspiration for centerpieces for the table. It all started with the oval tin flower planters. She told me about them, but I didn't know what they looked like. So off to the Dollar store I went to purchase a couple. They come in different floral designs. I chose sunflowers and the pretty pink flowers.
Each one is different. When Karen shared the theme name, I immediately thought of seeds in the garden....sowing the seeds. Flowers, seeds, garden gloves and butterflies. Karen came over 1 day and had 4-5 mini wooden bird houses, so we decided the birdhouses would be a cute addition, with little birds.
I wanted to personalize them each with a bookmark. I created some yellow bookmarks and pink ones. I have a small laminating machine that can create two bookmarks. Adding the tassels complete the look.
The dollar store has all different garden gloves. Almost everything is from the Dollar store, with the exception of the bird houses and seeds. They sometimes carry these items.
Seed packets were hot glued onto wooden skewers to poke in the foam. The butterflies were attached to each corner of the seed packets. I found these seeds at Walmart for .20 each.
I decorated each bird house differently. I decoupaged the roofs with pretty paper. I painted them all and highlighted the roof lines in a complimentary color. I used wooden skewers to attach the bird houses to the foam in the bottom of the flower tins. My husband drilled tiny holes in the bottom of the bird houses. He also extended the bird perches, because they were too short for the bird to sit on. Thank you my love for helping! He does read my blog
