Don’t throw out that empty laundry bottle! There’s always something you can make from recycled items and this pretty bouquet holder is no exception. It's the perfect present for Mother's Day, Grandparents' Day, or Earth Day.!
What you'll need:
- Empty plastic laundry bottle
- 1 sheet pink felt
- 1 sheet cream felt
- 1 yard thin ribbon
- White craft glue
- Coffee filter flowers
How to make it:
- Cut the top off of the laundry bottle keeping the pour spout in tact. Set the rest of the bottle aside for another project like our Laundry Bottle Pet Food Scoop.
- Turn laundry spout over so that the pour spout is pointing toward the floor. Remove the lid and set aside for another project.
- Cut a hole in the center of the pink felt (about the size of a quarter) and lay it over the top of the spout, spout still pointing toward the floor. Line up the hole in the felt with the spout opening.
- Glue the felt into the plastic top, overlap will hang over the edge. You should be able to hold the spout (pointing downward) in your hand like a bride’s bouquet. Glue some of the overlapping felt to the sides of the plastic so that it stays in place.
- Trim around the square edges of the felt to make them rounder.
- Tie ribbon into a bow and glue to the front of the bouquet holder and let dry.
- Wrap your flower stems with a piece of cream felt and insert it into the hole of the bouquet holder.
- Felt is a fabulous medium for hundreds of different craft projects. Be sure to stock up on different colors when visiting your local craft store.
- White school glue can be substituted for white craft glue. However school glue does not dry at the same rate so keep an eye on your project.
- This craft makes a pretty bouquet holder for Mom or Grandma and can also be used for playing dress up!
