How did you support the non-daisy items? Are they attached to a stick?

I inserted floral wire into the "buds" as I rolled them up.  Some of them are just stuck on the wire, some also have floral tape holding them on.  You could also use wooden skewers instead of the wire.  I then stuck them into foam inside the pot.  I also wrapped some wire around the pacifiers to hold them in the arrangement.


Thanks! I'm going to start gathering up little baby items in preparation... because I just thought of another person who is having a baby, and if I parcel out the purchases over time, it won't seem like so much cash to make a few of them. Thanks again for the inspiration and instructions!

So cute and clever!

I'd bet that you could also mount them on bamboo skewers or even chopsticks, for stability.

Filling in with flowers really makes this gorgeous!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

That is beautiful.  I have a baby shower to go to in August.  I think this is just the thing to do for my friend.  Thanks for the idea.  Grin
