DIY Floating Centerpiece

Turn items from the Dollar store into a beautiful floating centerpiece that's easy to make! Check out the Youtube Tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcia4bVoEu4&t=305s

Materials Needed:

 The Dollar Store has really cute and unique seasonal items. So I was really excited to find the following Spring items: 

*Basket

*A small stuffed animal

*Plastic Easter Eggs

*Small container or basket 

*Scissors

*Wire Hanger

*Low Temp Glue Gun (recommended)

Bend The Hanger

Carefully bend the wire hanger into the shape that you desire. I recommend bending the hanger into a "Z"-shape. The hanger was easier to glue in that shape.

Optional: Painter's Tape

After you have bent the hanger into the appropriate shape, add a small piece of painters tape. This optional step just adds an extra layer of security to ensure the hanger stays closed.

Glue the Hanger 

Glue the hanger in place in the basket. If you are using a plastic basket, I recommend using a low temp glue gun  .This will help ensure that the glue won't melt or "warp" the plastic. Make sure you do this step very carefully to avoid any injury.

Cut the tags

Remove any tags from the stuffed animal and the small basket.

Glue the basket and plush

Carefully glue the small basket to the top of the hanger and then glue the stuffed animal to the back of the small basket. Again use caution while gluing to avoid injury.

Glue the Eggs

Cover the entire hanger with the plastic easter eggs. Apply the low temp glue liberally to the eggs. This will ensure that the eggs stick to the hanger and to other eggs.

Almost Finished

The way that the centerpiece is finished is completely up to you! You can either:

*Stop gluing at this point and fill the bottom up with filled plastic eggs so your guests can be interactive with your centerpiece.

 

or


*Continue gluing the empty plastic eggs to the bottom of the basket until the centerpiece looks fuller.


Either way you decide to finish the centerpiece, make sure that you double check the eggs to make sure that the hanger is completely covered. Glue more eggs to any empty or scarce spots.

FINISHED!

The finished product! Its so cute, fun, inexpensive and easy to make. I started off using 20 eggs but I wanted it to look more full so I used 40 eggs in total. I spent under $10 for this project and it looks great!
