I was volunteered to do the centerpieces for a Cub Scout banquet. The theme is CIRCUS. I used a little Cricut, but I thought I'd share. The first one is a balloon bouquet. Each balloon has the name of the scout and the other side has a picture of a clown (all done in vinyl). I used a coffee can filled with sand as a weight. I punched holes in the plastic lid and just tied them through the holes, then put the lid back onto the can. I coordinated the base with the same clown.
The other centerpiece is a candy bouquet chock full of goodies. (The boys will get the goodies when the banquet is done) I used PC Crafter clip art "Just clowning around". Cut out a circus character for each scout and the leaders. Of course I had to vinyl the bucket.
