Barbie's Super Bowl Button and Bead Flower Bouquet

A sign of things to come? I found this Los Angeles Rams miniature coffee mug at the thrift store last fall. I thought the Rams were playing well at the time (and they didn't have an Eagles one) so I picked it up for 50¢. Well, here we are a few months later, about to watch Super Bowl VIII and the Rams are in it! The scale of the mug is too large for a doll's coffee cup, it's about the size of a thimble, but it works well as a vase or diorama decoration.

Barbie says, even though your home team might not be playing... 
It's always fun to have a football party!

Barbie's centerpiece is a cute button and bead bouquet in the NFC team colors of gold and blue.

Button and Bead Bouquet:
  1. I used daisy flower buttons and green tinsel pipe cleaners for stems. 
  2. Simply push pipe cleaner through the button hole, twist to hold button in place, shape the stem, and position the flower as desired.
  3. A couple fuzzy pipe cleaner swirls add a little Rams blue accent.
  4. And of course the football bead is a nice nod to the big game.
  5. Twist all of the pipe cleaners together at the bottom and secure them inside the cup with some hot glue.

And every party has to have some munchies...
I'm lovin' these fantastic Cookies from the Etsy Shop One Sixth Restaurant!
Adorable and the perfect scale... I wish I could take a bite😍
What team are you rooting for on Super Bowl Sunday???

  2. I have one of these larger mugs, I put in the guys' room...they always use big mugs for 'change'. Cute idea though to make it a 'gift' arrangement. Fun post!
