purchased most of the materials for this craft at
Michaels and spent less than $100 for 15 centrepieces.
@ $6.50 each (about 1-2 inches thick - I did not use
a wire edged ribbon)
Wire @ $1 per roll (used only a bit of the roll - there's
- You only need household scissors to cut the thin floral
Paint @ $2 for a 59 ml. bottle - again, I only used
a bit - LOTS OF LEFT OVERS
Brush @ $1 (dollar store)
@ $3.99 a package (used 1/2 a package per bowl)
@ $1-2 each
Master - Rent it from Darsi !!!! - note I used 4 pronges
to make my little bows)
Nail Polish - I'm sure it's in everyon'es bathroom drawer!!
the scalloped edge of an ivy bowl with a colour of your
choice - I painted the edges gold and it made them look
so classy! (Finish the paint with a clear nail polish
if you don't want the paint to dissolve in water.) Make
a bow with the bow master. I used about 20 inches of floral
wire per bow, but it really depends on how big the neck
of your ivy bowl is. I used between 16 and 18 inches of
ribbon per bow, this was 3 rolls for 20 bows. Follow the
bow making instructions, and attach the bow around the
neck of the ivy bowl by wrapping the wire and twisting
it at the end. Just snip the excess wire and fold it into
the neck. Gently drop the marbles into the bottom of the
bowl (dumping them in will chip them). I used half a bag
of marbles per bowl (7 bags for 15 centrepieces). Put
a 1-2 inch candle in the bottom in the marbles and it
is all ready!!
the bowl with the marbles like in the instructions above,
and then fill the bowl with water (3/4 full or until
desired) and place a floating candle in the water!
a stencil or freehand, paint the ivy bowl with acryllic
paints so that the bowls look like stained glass!!!
(you need a really steady hand!) (Don't buy the 'stained
glass' paint, its too light!)
those are the instructions. Fairly easy to make with little
effort and time. I just sat in front of the TV!!!
