May Arts Ribbon:: Ribbon Cutting Ceremony




May Arts is celebrating the launch of their website in a huge way! Both with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Blog Hop and a major prize package!



Halloween is fast approaching and I wanted to create a quick, fun and utterly whimsical centerpiece to adorn the tables at a children's party. Inspired by what I saw here, I reached for May Arts mini pom-poms and leftover water balloons to create a smaller version off the balloon bouquet in the form of a wand that I stuck inside an old apothecary bottle.

With a quick snip of scissors, I cut the pom-poms from the trim and glued them onto to the balloons. I wrapped black silk around a bamboo skewer, adhered the balloons to the wand and tied it all together with a black silk bow.


I'm excited to see these centerpieces all lined up on the tables! And it gets even better that the kids can take them out of the bottles at the end of the party and use them as wands or swords too.


There are endless color combinations and uses for this quick project!

Please stop by the May Arts Blog for more inspiration and complete de
