There are a plethora of cute crafts that incorporate baby items into an artistic cake, bear, bunny -- or even a flower bouquet for the mum-to-be. Onesies, the one-piece infant bodysuit, can be turned into a pretty flower bouquet. The onesie flower bouquet is an easy craft that even an older brother or sister can make for the baby. It also can be used as a centrepiece at a baby celebration.
Things you need
- Large clay flower pot
- Flower-arranging foam
- 5 infant sized onesies in a solid colour
- 5 pieces of stem wire
- Silk or plastic flowers and leaves (as many as you want)
- Grosgrain ribbon
- Utility scissors
Cut the flower-arranging foam into the size of the flower pot. Push the foam down into the bottom of the pot with your hands so that it is secure.
Fold each of the onesies in half lengthwise. The sleeves of the onesies should be facing you, the folded edge will be the top of the flower bud. Starting at the crotch of the garment, roll the onesie up into a tube that looks like a Swiss roll cake. Take a piece of flower wire and wrap it around the centre of the rolled up onesie so that the top portion looks like a rose bud. Set aside and repeat the process with the remaining onesies.
Arrange the flower-bud onesies in the pot so that the folded edge/flower bud is up at the top of the pot and the sleeves are at the bottom. Poke the wire deeply into the foam so that the onesies are securely placed.
Arrange the silk/plastic flowers and leaves in between the onesies to accent the flower bouquet. You can use as many or few flowers and leaves as you prefer.
Melt the ends of the grosgrain ribbon using the lighter so it does not fray. Tie the ribbon around the flower pot in a big bow.
