Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Adorable Inexpensive Centerpieces

Look at these cute centerpieces my daughter #2 made for a little dinner she hosted. She needed to come up with something inexpensive so she started with a 4X4 inch piece of wood, cut into 6 inch lengths. She added plain scrapbook paper to 4 sides of the block of wood and polka dots (Lisa!) cut from the same colors as the flowers.She drilled some holes in the top of the wood block.
She cut a 4 inch circle into a spiral and pushed it out a little to form a flower. Then hot glued it so it would stay in the flower shape.

She hot glued some wire long enough to be a stem onto the back of the flower and then stuck the wire into the predrilled holes.

I think they're so adorable. Wouldn't they be cute for a bridal or baby shower? How about a birthday party or use holiday paper for a holiday theme.



Way to go daughter #2!

Okay, it took me a minute to figure out the spiral, but now I get it. How stinkin' darling is that?! The apple does NOT fall far from the tree.
