Breast Cancer Awareness Centerpiece | Breast Cancer Awareness Month Decoration


hey guys welcome back to my channel with
breast cancer awareness month coming up pretty soon I was inspired to make a
breast cancer awareness centerpiece for your next benefit or fundraiser here we
go okay the number one thing about
decorating for fundraisers is that it has to be affordable because after all
it is a fundraiser so after going through three different ideas in my head
for about three days I’ll come up with something that I think is going to be
beautiful and also affordable all right let’s get started this arrangement is
going to consist of five phases but I’m going to make this two into one so it’s
going to be one made arrangement and then three other bases around it I’m
going to burn the tallest base which has two white red on top and I’m going to
turn it over I’m going to apply some e6000 to the middle for a stronger bond
and then I’m going to add tons of hot glue not over it go around just gonna
place this on top now I’m going to place this to the side and I want to start
working on my ribbon I see you know flowers can be pretty costly whether
they’re real or not so to keep the pasta I decided to only use ribbon glitter and
a few candles and you will see at the very end and to get started I’m going to
start with the widest ribbon and this is a one and a half inch ribbon and make
sure to use a protective paper where you going to work or your work area because
the last time I use it was all over the place and my husband
I hit her on his face on the way to work and that was not cool so I want I
thought it was cute but he didn’t think it was cool so I’m going to bring back
my tall base because I’m going to be placing a tall pink glitter ribbon right
in front of it and I need to measure how much ribbon I’m going to need the ribbon
is going to pretty much pick up the whole room here so as you know the
breast cancer now I have to bling this up or glitter this up with lots of
glitter so what I’m going to do is give you a close-up first I’m going to use
tacky spray that is from Walmart and I’m going to use fine glitter this is
raspberry from my post and the brand is recollections so I will have this in the
description box for you to refer to so I’m going to spray both sides actually
what I’m going to start with this side first then you’re just going to go ahead
and sprinkle now I’m going to add a crystal clear
acrylic coating which is going to help me keep the glitter intact and it’s
going to act as a protective shield I’m going to let it dry for about ten
minutes and I’m going to do the same to the other side I’m also going to measure
and cut my lighter pink and this is a 7/8 inch ribbon and this ribbon I’m
going to use to cover up the imperfections here or they got here that
I have between phases so I’m going to measure this here and there you’re wet
okay so I’m going to measure how much ribbon I need I wish this ribbon was one
inch wide but I’m using what I have and I’m going to double up on this ribbon so
I’m going to cut it right here – Oh bot or make to life so it’s going
to look something like this with both ribbons together because thicker will
look better with one I don’t know I don’t think it gives enough coverage so
now I’m going to do the same as I did with my darker pink and I’m going to add
glitter but this one is going to be a lighter glitter from Dollar Tree and
they have different tones of pink purple and red but they have a couple of total
pink and I’m going to use the lightest one here’s what it looks like
you should only apply layer to one side of the ribbon this side you’re not going
to be able to see so long side is enough and just so you know I used two of the
little packets of the glitter from our treats which means that I use one from
this one and one from this one because they’re all different colors so one of
each and I think you might as well buy a container of light pink glitter you’ll
be better off doing that instead of buy two of these I mean it depends on the
price but I was afraid that I wouldn’t have enough so just to be sure make sure
to buy a container of light pink glitter I’m going to start adding my ribbons and
I’m going to start with my glitter light pink ribbons so I’m just going to place
them on here so now I’m going to add my March ribbon
but I’ve been thinking and I’m not sure yet but I might add a ribbon to the
front and to the back but right now I’m this point to plan on blue one ribbon
and if you are what to use one I want to place my ribbon on this side where the
smaller ribbon or the lighter ribbon meet so I can hide this lip right here
so this is going to be my front and the nice area is going to be the back so I
can hide this alright so what I’m going to do is make this shape see see okay so
I’m making the shape of the ribbon and I’m going to make sure that this area
right here the bottom of the ribbon are level and then once I do that I’m
going to blue the middle right here so you can stay together put a good amount
of glue here so it will look something like this
plus your glue is dry you can go ahead and apply hot glue to that area right
here with the ribbons meet apply a good amount and then you are going to blue
this part of the ribbon where it cross right on there and then you’re going to add glue to the
very top is I’m going to go ahead and add another ribbon to the back because I
think that’s gonna make you look even better and this is how it looks like we
both for this I’m going to move on to my other three vases and what I’m going to
do here is I’m going to wrap this glitter pink ribbon around each base and
then I’m going to place the words hope faith and pink over the ribbon alright
so I’m just going to show you how to make one because they’re each the same
process they’re just different words so basically I just went ahead and make the
same glitter ribbon as I did earlier and I’m just going to measure and cut I’m going to grab my light pink glitter
letters I got this from Michaels and they match perfectly with the lighter
pink of the other ribbon and it will be a great contrast someone to start with
the word hope and this is how full actually and they’re so adhesive so it’s
going to be very easy and you’re just going to go ahead and place it right on
top here are all my three phases together with the words hope pink and
faith I love them I think they look fabulous
and I added water to all well two of these phases I’m going to add water to
this one because I’m going to add floating candles to them but before I
add the candle I’m going to add some food coloring to the water in the color
pink of course and this is what it looks like there you go and I’m just going to
add a bit of this in the water I’m not sure how dark I want it to be I guess
I’ll figure it out in a second and I’m just gonna whoops that went way
more than I wanted it to be this looks rad this does not look pink okay so
there’s this color I’m just gonna map one tiny drop on this
one I guess I can test the colors out now one tiny job that was one drop okay so
this is the color I want and then I’m going to add the floating candle right
on top nice alright guys this is that this is my breast cancer awareness
center pieces and I think they are beautiful and they are totally budget
friendly and one thing though for more than one make sure to add some glue to
the letters there’s some adhesive but they are coming up a little bit because
the glitter underneath it it’s not letting it by completely so make sure
you’re adding to that also as far as a food coloring
you only need one little drop of food coloring to get this color if you add
more is going to look red as we saw earlier and yeah and I think it looks
much better with two ribbons 100 front and one in the back I hope you guys
