I had a challenge from my team can you create an Easter centerpiece for $5. I am Madame Deals so here is my entry. I used the items below with the help of three assistants to create an amazing centerpiece or hostess gift.
Here is what I had peeps $2, $1 lollipop sticks (I still have some left), cookies $1.00 (I bought the mix at the $1 store), glass bead $1 , scrapbook paper $.15, $.25 floral block the egg and oil $.20. The vase was from an orchid I got last year. I always save my cool looking vases. I got the peeps for free they were sent to me from Bj’s wholesale club. The pack of 50 peep is just $4.99. I know you have to buy yours so I used their price in my $5 challenge.
The first thing you are going to do is start putting the items on the sticks. I poked the cookies at the fattest part I could find. The I put the peeps on the sticks in singles and doubles.
Then you will fold the paper a little bit so it stays in the vase. I added in the floral foam and then we put in our cookies and peep picks. The kids had a blast positioning them. This is part of letting them do what they want to do.
I just added a cute card that say’s Hoppy Easter I figured this would make a super gift. If you are placing this on your table you do not need a card. I think it is so important to involve your children in your decorating efforts and what better than to cook and create things for less that $5. If you make things and use your imagination you can live on less.That reminds me have you seen my $5 savings plan it helped me put thousand back into my pocket and it made my mailbox magical when I achieved financial success.
