Hi ladies,

I just wanted to share what I've been up to lately. I was asked to donate something for an Autism Awareness Charity Dinner, so I wanted to share what I have submitted. All the chat lately in the US is about 'Bow Baskets' so I decided I would put together a 'Bow Bucket' and donate it. Let me know what you think. I got the Autism Awareness ribbon from Janine. Thanks Janine!







Hope everyone is having a great week!

Hey Gena - that looks fantastic.

What did you use inside the bucket? Was it oasis (florist foam).

I did up a bowquet for a friends daughter. My friend is a florist so I thought it was appropriate. But I found the sticks wobbled too much and left big holes in the foam.

I'd love it if you would share how you put it together.

Thanks
Janine

Hi ladies,

Thanks for all of the compliments, I was pretty pleased myself!

Yes Janine, I did use Oasis (foam) for the interior. I made sure though that it filled most of the bucket. It was about 15-17 cm tall. I also made sure that the skewers I used (they were BBQ25cm x 4mm skewers) reached to the bottom of the bucket for stability. I also think that it helped putting them on an angle.

Anyhow, I hope I answered all of the questions, if not, let me know. Also, I brought it in my office today to give it to the rep and got another order out of one of my co-workers! It's excellent!

Have a great Friday!

Gena
