How to Make Alice in Wonderland Flowers for a Birthday Party Centerpiece
My best friend is having an Alice In Wonderland themed party for my God daughter’s first birthday. I decided that I wanted to make a paper flower centerpiece for her using a recycled pretzel container and some dyed coffee filter flowers. This was my original inspiration. First let me show you how to make the vase. These instructions contain affiliate links for recommended products.
Materials for Flower Vase:
- Large plastic container (I used a pretzel container from Costco)
- Craft paint
- Paint brush
- Craft knife
- Embellishments (ribbon, craft butterflies)
Instructions for the Centerpiece Vase:
Cut the plastic container to the desired size. I found it easiest to puncture the container with a craft knife first and then use scissors to cut the rest.
Remove the stickers and paint the inside of the container with craft paint and embellish it with ribbon. I also used craft butterflies. Painting the inside will give it a nice glossy finish.
Materials for Alice in Wonderland Flowers:
- Dyed Coffee Filter Flowers
- Scrapbook paper and/or cardstock
- Hot glue and glue gun
- Double-sided tape
- Floral Tape
Photo Instructions: I thought photo instructions would be self-explanatory. I just cut and trimmed as I went, using the inspiration photo on my phone as a guide.
Note: I started with a 3”X3” piece of cardstock.
Here are few close ups of the faces. I hot glued the paper flowers onto the floral wrapped skewers and inserted them into Styrofoam hidden inside the vase.
Here are a couple after photos.
Here they are at the actual Alice in Wonderland First Birthday Party!
