Tutorial: DIY Hair Bow Centerpiece made out of fabric

Pin It
Fabric Hair Bow Centerpiece

Do you have left over fabric scraps that you do not know what to do with? Lets make a bow centerpiece.


You will need:
Fabric Scrap
Grosgrain Ribbon
Heat N Bond
Plastic Bottlecap (optional)

 Iron your Heat N Bond to the back side of your fabric.

 Place your plastic bottle cap (I used a water bottle cap) over the image you want and trace it with your pen.

Cut out circles

Peel off the heat n bond paper backing from your fabric.

Iron your fabric circle cutouts to your grosgrain ribbon.

Cut around your fabric leaving a ribbon trim. Then, heat seal the ends of your ribbon until it curls up right next to your fabric.

This is what it will look like when you are half way done heating your ribbon.

 Once the ribbon cools down it's almost like a hard plastic.

Glue your new centerpiece to your favorite bow :)

  Tada!! Adorable John Deere Fabric Bow Centerpieces

I hope this tutuorial inspired you to create!

DIY Kid Quotes Journal

Pin It
Kids Quote Journal
DIY Monday

  We made these back in '09 to record funny things the kids say. Whenever the kids say something funny we try to write it down.

Like today I said "oh man, I gotta take the backroads again." and Madison said "Why can't you take the front roads?" lol. That went into the book.

Jaxson's book I made when he was first born and it needs an upgrade. It is too babyish

All you need is a notebook, scrapbook paper, tape, stickers and anything else you want to decorate it with.

What's a funny thing your child has said that you will never forget?

Brown and Blue Baby Shower Ideas. Modern Baby Boy Shower Ideas.

Pin It
Modern Baby Boy Shower

Updated from Jaxson's Baby Shower post.

The Decor and Colors

For my baby shower for Jaxson we went with a Brown and Blue Modern Baby theme.
 We had the Modern Baby plates, napkins, chocolate candy wrappers, labels, & Plush Baby Rattles.

The Diaper and Party Favor Table
A great idea: send a note with your invation saying "Bring a bag of diapers and get your name in a drawing to win a $25 gift card". See how many bag of diapers you will get and it will only cost you $25. Many stores will let you trade out the diapers if you do not get the size/brand you want.

We gave out a $25.00 gift card to The Olive Garden. Every new mom needs plenty of diapers.

The Plush Modern Baby Rattle sitting on the Motorcycle Diaper Cake.

  I made the favor boxes myself using brown and blue cardstock. Secure with a cute ribbon and slap on a matching label. Place your favor boxes on a cupcake stand for a perfect table centerpiece. Tutorial coming soon :)

The Cake Table
It's not a very good picture, but on the right side of this picture is another little Plush Baby sitting in a glass bowl of chocolate candy and blue mints. The candy is wrapped in a Modern Baby Candy Wrapper. The vases are filled with blue glass beads and blue flowers.

The Cake...

The Modern Baby Shower Cake was a simple one tier cake with blue & brown cupcakes. I made the little modern baby out of fondant and black frosting. Read more about the cake here
The Invitations...
Handmade Brown and Blue Baby Shower invitations made out of cardstock, scrapbook paper, and ribbon. Three presents stacked on top of each other.
The Banner above the cake table..
Another easy diy idea is to make your own banner.
Print out "It's A boy" on white cardstock and cut out. I boxed each letter (before you print) so it was not so plain. Then, tie a 6" piece of ribbon in a single not and glue it above each letter. Finally, just glue a long piece of ribbon to the back of each letter to hang or use a hole punch and thread the ribbon through each hole. Hang up with clear push pins or tape. 
The Baby Clothes Line...
Simple and Easy. Great for any baby shower. Just clip your favorite baby clothes to ribbon.

Baby Shower Game: Scratch off Lotto Ticket

How to Make a Paper Bow
This doesn't have the right label on it, but I made these boxes (with the Modern Baby Labels) for the prize gifts. When someone won a game they got these cute boxes. They're bigger than the goody boxes. These were filled up with items from Bath and Body Works. Learn how to make your own paper bow here.
Other Baby Shower Ideas....
 Instead of having a "Gift Table" use your new baby crib :)

Make little candies to match your decor using colored candy melts and baby shower candy molds. The kids will love them!
Hang your balloons upside down. Just use a clear push pin. Hang a cute paper mobile. Just don't turn on the fan :)
I hope this post gave you some creative ideas for your next baby shower.
