How: Baby Washcloths, Socks & Onesies Bouquet

Baby washcloths and socks bouquet.

A few months ago, in a fleeting Martha Stewart moment, I decided to make a baby washcloth and onesie bouquet for a friend's baby shower.  I wanted to share the instructions for others who want to channel their inner Crafty McCrafterson. 

Finished Bouquet.

What you'll need: 
  • Baby washcloths, socks and/or onesies -- a total of 12 items
  • Glass vase
  • 12 green floral wire stems
  • Green floral tape
  • 6 - 8 "bunches" of plastic leaves (amount depends on how leafy you want the arrangement to be)
  • Filler for vase -- i.e. glass beads
  • Decorative ribbon

  1. Fill vase 3/4 full of filler (i.e. glass beads).
  2. Remove leaves from bunches and set aside.
  3. Make roses.  Washcloth roses videoOnesie and sock roses video.  (The second video includes how to make roses from bibs as well.)
  4. Fold over 1/2-inch of each wire stem and insert into the bottom of the rose.  
  5. Secure a few leaves to the stem by wrapping with floral tape. 
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 with remaining roses.   
  7. Insert all stems into vase.  
  8. Tie decorative ribbon around middle of vase.
