If you follow us on Facebook and Pinterest, you might have seen the fun Easter tradition from See Jane Blog that we shared last week. Her children plant “magic” jelly beans on Easter Saturday, and wake up on Easter morning to lollipops growing in the garden. Such a fun idea! When the Easter Bunny visited us (when my teens were little) he used to leave paw prints (made from flour) over the kitchen floor. Those were the days!
The Lollipop idea reminded us of the centrepieces that we made for a child’s Enchanted Garden Birthday Party. This would also work well for an Easter or spring celebration. It makes for a sweet centrepiece and you can alter the colour of the flowers and jelly beans to suit your occasion.
- Bamboo skewers
- Green ribbon
- Cotton Thread
- Ceramic Pot (we purchased ours from Ikea)
- Floristry foam
- Jelly beans
Cut flower shapes out of the felt. Using 2 buttons as the flower centre, stitch the felt flower onto a bamboo skewer. Tie a piece of green ribbon onto the skewer.
Fill the flower pot with a piece of floristry foam. Arrange the felt flowers in the pot. Add a few lollipops, and cover the foam with assorted jelly beans.
