I've read of several people making these, and I was wondering if someone had pics of their creations! I'm interested in making one, but I'm artsy, not craftsy...I kind of need a little help in that department and would love to see/hear about yours.

Thanks guys!

I just made one (my first & probably only) this week. Maybe I can get DH to take a pic. of it tomorrow & post it for me. (I'm not very artsy/crafty or very computer savvy).

I copied my bouqet from another DISer who has a picture of hers in her signature. I noticed that she has the same Disney vase I do, so I thought it would be easy for me to make a bouquet look just like hers.

I was planning the project for awhile & couldn't wait to get to Disney in May to buy a bunch of toppers. Well, I overestimated the number I would need & got WAY TOO MANY.

I'll see if I can get DH to post it tomorrow.
I'm hoping to see some other DISers creations on here too!!

Great idea for a thread!!

If anyone has any other ideas besides a bouquet, I'd love to hear them! I currently have them all lined up on a shelf thing I made, but it's hanging on the wall and taking up valuable picture space. With every trip to WDW, my "duck" room :donald: gets more and more stuffed and I've got to start finding creative ways to condense things! LOL!

Ooh! I would love to see a picture of one of these bouquets! I have some antenna toppers (but no antenna--go figure!), and I would love a way to display them!!!

I have 30something toppers, and although I don't have an "official" bouquet, I bought a bag of wooden skewers that are pointy on the one end and have put each one of the toppers on a skewer and have them sitting in a big vase. That's as far as I got with it, but at least I see them all everyday, they are not in a bag in the drawer waiting for the correct mood or holiday.... some I will probably never use on the car, and most times I use them for only a short time or season, so I put them back on the skewere when I switch to something new!

I didn't do a bouquet.
DH made me stands and we use real antennas. My room is so happy ;)
I have over 100 :)
