I am pretty famous (in my own mind) for saying “Oh my gosh, why would I spend _____ on this when I can so make it myself with supplies I already have?!” Then, I don’t ever make the decor item, wish I had, and yeah… you see where I’m going with this.
Well Target had this gift tower (centerpiece?) that was SOOO cute, except some of the colors and such weren’t great. I headed to Michael’s, got a wood dowel, and now I’m REALLY making my own gift tower centerpiece! Since I’m totally winging this and making it up as I go I thought it would be fun to bring you along on my adventure. This is day #1.
Ok, so I have a ceramic pot, and then I gathered a few boxes and things that I want to use. I stacked it up until I maxed out. NOTHING is final or glued at this point. I’m just figuring out where I want stuff.
See how I got the dowel through? I took a craft knife and poled slits so that the dowel could poke through the middle, but the excess would help hold on (and hold it in place).
My next step will be decorating each box, then finding the hot glue gun to make it all stick together. Stay tuned!
