Remember when I shared this tablescape from the baby shower? I promised I would show you how I made the clothesline center piece, and I shall!
The supplies you will need are:
- Two Shallow Galvanized Buckets
- Rocks or Marbles
- Spray Foam
- Two 3/4″ Dowel Rods
- Drill and Drill Bit
- Safety Glasses
- Hot Glue Gun
First, I drilled a hole 2″ down from the top of the dowel rod. This is where the twine will slip through. Next, I filled the bottom of the buckets with rocks I found in the floral department at Hobby Lobby. This is how you will weigh the buckets down.
Then, I sprayed the foam inside the bucket while holding the dowel rod in the center. I allowed it to set up over night by resting the dowel rods against the wall. I wanted them to be angled to the outside of the bucket slightly. It has something to do with gravity and math and science and stuff.
The next day, I covered that unsightly foam with some burlap that I simply hot glued into place. You can find this burlap at Hobby Lobby for about $4/roll.
The burlap and lace garland is something I made for Michelle’s living room! It was hanging in my closet, ready for installation at her house, and I grabbed it the morning of the shower. I am so glad I did! It added sparkle and softness to the table. The BABY sign I made using a free printable from Shanty 2 Chic, and brown polka dot wrapping paper from Target.
Best part of this project is that I can use it over,and over again. Birthday parties, weddings (imagine on the cake table!!), or I could use it on my mantle in the spring! This project cost about $20. The twine and rocks I already had on hand. I found the rest of the supplies at my neighborhood hardware store. They know me by name now! I have arrived!
