How to Make a Cookie Bouquet
When my son turned three, I wanted his centerpieces to do double duty as the party favors, so I created this short tutorial on how to make a cookie bouquet.
1- I love doing pre-work before a party, so you can easily paint a clay pot in the color schedule of your party. I just spray painted this, which is much easier than using acrylic paint, like I have done in the past. I then fill it with dry Styrofoam and cover with crinkle shred.
2- Make your own cookies or have your favorite cookie artist (obviously what I did here) create yours on a stick. (Baking them on a stick is the most important step). I got these locally from Queen B Cookies and they are beautiful as well as tasty! She also wraps them in cellophane, too, which is perfect when you are using them as favors. For each centerpiece, I used four large cookies.
3- Google search images that match your theme and print them onto card stock. The most tedious part is cutting them each out by hand. For this particular centerpiece, I cut out 6-7 Paw Patrol characters and then adhered them to bamboo skewers with a glue dot.
4- To create the bouquet, I added the four cookies to the four “sides” of the container at varying heights. I then filled in with the character cut outs.
I have a video below if you prefer a visual!
