I was so beyond excited about little CeeCee’s first ballet recital that I couldn’t wait to make her a little nosegay. I wanted to add a little something special and so I turned to the thing she loves the most… her “kitties” … Hello Kitty!
I headed off to Michael’s with a loose plan. I decided to make one Hello Kitty themed silk flower that could be tucked into a nosegay of real flowers. That way she could keep the Hello Kitty long after the real flowers wilted.
Supplies I used for Hello Kitty:
2 white silk carnations ($1)
2 black pom poms (eyes)
1 pink pom pom (nose)
black cording (cut into whiskers)
white foam for ears
To wrap up bouquet:
small $4 bunch of flowers from Trader Joe’s
To make Hello Kitty:
I originally cut out a foam bow and then later decided a ribbon bow would be cuter. I also subbed out the yellow nose for pink. I printed off a copy of Hello Kitty to use as a guide for cutting the ears.
To assemble the bouquet:
Remove leaves from bottom 3/4 of stems
Arrange flowers in hand
Use pipe cleaner to wire together
Cut hole in center of doily and slide up stem; Tape to secure
Wrap entire stem in pink ribbon and tie with a bow!
The little angel absolutely loved it!!!! It was really inexpensive to make and will surely make any little girl’s day!
I absolutely adored every second of her recital and will share all the preciously pink pictures later this week!!! It was a welcome change from my usual rough and tumble weekends :-)
