DIY: Minnie Garden Party Centerpieces
These moss Minnie centerpieces were super simple (so simple a 5 year old could do it!) and affordable to assemble but made a huge impact in the overall design of the party. They were definitely a great way to incorporate both aspects of the Minnie Garden Party theme.
Follow these simple instructions to make your own....
Step 1: Gather your tools - For each Minnie, you will need one larger moss ball (approx. 6") and two smaller moss balls (approx. 3") from your local craft supply store. You will also need a variety of fake flowers, a glue gun and two lollipop sticks.
Step 2: Assemble the ears - Take one of the smaller moss balls and poke one of the lollipop sticks about halfway through it. Poke the other half of the stick in the top larger moss ball at about a 45 degree angle. Repeat with the second small moss ball.
Step 3: Add flowers - Depending on how big the flowers are and how full you want Minnie's "crown" to look, pull 3-5 fake flowers from the stems (without taking off the added green plastic part that holds the petals together.) Using your hot glue gun, place a dollop of glue on the flower and then press into the center of the top of your large moss ball (between the ears) Hold there for a few seconds to let the glue dry a bit. Repeat until you have added all of the flowers you want.
Tip: put the assembled moss Minnie on a small bucket to add flowers.
Step 4: Display - Use a container with an opening slightly wider than the larger moss ball to hold your assembled Minnie. A galvanized bucket or a glass jar with some burlap ribbon is perfect for a garden theme.
