After I found out that we were going to have a smaller number at the reception than I thought, I decided we would have a designated table of fun for the kids to hang out by throughout the night. I'm not sitting anyone at it during dinner, but it will be there for after with coloring books, games, toys, etc. It also needed a centerpiece =]
So I made a cute ribbon pomander...with a bit of a twist. I had started a tulle pomander and never finished it because I changed my mind three different times for the flower girl. So I used that and added ribbon to it. I stuck it on a balloon stick and stuck it into a pail that I also thought would be for the flower girl at one point. Here's what it looks like:
It's a really easy project, it's just a little time consuming. I was able to do it with all things that I already had, so there was no cost associated with it. It was a great way to use up extra ribbon that I didn't have a use for anymore. And I got to use the failed tulle pomander as well!
What's your favorite project that came about from failed projects or leftover supplies??
