Are you looking for a gift for that hard to buy for guy? Look no further. My husband loved the first bouquet I made in my original post the man bouquet . This time I thought I’d follow it up with another version by using a beer mug instead of a flower pot. It looks even better!
Here are the materials that I used. You can really use anything… just think about who you are giving it to and some of their favorite things. I have below a beer mug (World Market), tissue paper, wooden skewers, scratch offs, mini liquor bottles, peanuts, beef jerky, 5 hour energy shot, cigars, tape, scissors and styrofoam balls.
First I stuffed some tissue in the bottom of the mug so that ball had something to sit on.
Then I took the blue tissue and the ball out and wrapped it all in the green tissue so that it would look nice from the outside.
Here is a top view of how I wrapped the ball. I only used two sheets of the green tissue.
After I set the mug up how I liked I started to tape my gifts to the wooden skewers. Be liberal with the tape so that the items don’t fall off. Especially if they are a little heavier, like the liquor bottles. I think hot glue would work too but just be careful that it doesn’t melt your gifts. 🙂
Just stick the skewer right into the ball and make the gift item as high or low as you like. If you make a mistake just pull the skewer back out and stick it into a new position. Easy!
Here is a picture of a few gift items already skewered into the styrofoam ball.
Here is the finished bouquet! I tried to keep the liquor bottles low since they were heavier, and the lighter objects, like the scratch offs, higher.
Lastly, I played around with the ‘wrapping’ and found some blue ribbon in my craft drawer. I also stuck a few pieces of orange tissue in between and around the exposed skewers at the bottom. What do you think?
This would be so easy to turn into a girl bouquet too. You could add make up and nail polish.You could also give these bouquets as birthday presents, groomsmen, bridesmaids (think wine glass instead of beer mug), fathers, in-laws, brothers, neighbors, etc. You could play around with the color scheme too especially if you are working with college or sport colors.
What are some other items that would be neat to add to this or any other “bouquet?”
