Hello Kitty homemade flower arrangement

A young adult friend of the family is a huge Hello Kitty (HK) fan. My son took her to her High School Prom, so I made up a little flower arrangement with a HK theme. Here in St. George we have a Harmon's grocery store, and they have a nice floral department. For about $8 you can get a nice little bouquet of flowers. I brought the bouquet home, and "accessorized" it. I started with some HK stickers, and put them on some card stock. I punched these out with a hole punch, used some glue dots and stuck the punch-out to a bamboo skewer (used for BBQ), and put them in the flowers. You can cut the skewer to be the height you want.

I also put a stick on a hang tag, and tied it to the mason jar (cheap vase!)

I have been missing my Mapleton least when it comes to planting flowers and having the opportunity to work in the dirt a bit. That is the downside of renting. Anyway, I bought a few plants to plunk into a pot. My friend, Char, brought me some of her extras. After one week, it is looking so good. We actually filled 2 pots and they are both wonderful to look at.
