What toys are suitable for a bouquet?
Many have old toys at home, and the question arises whether such toys will fit the bouquet? In principle, for a bouquet of soft toys any toy, both new and old, both purchased and hand-made, will fit. But of course, if these are not new toys, then they should not look scruffy or improper. If you are going to be engaged in the manufacture of bouquets of soft toys for commercial purposes, then it is best to buy toys at the wholesale bases, as the choice there is usually better, and the prices are lower. Suitable for bouquets and musical toys, as well as small toys, key chains.
How to attach toys in a bouquet?
As a basis for fixing toys in a bouquet, thick foam is most often used; you can also take polystyrene foam. In the extreme case, you can use cardboard for the base, but it is much more problematic to fasten toys on it and this design will be fragile.
What do we do next? A piece of foam is taken and a circle is cut from it so that it can fit all the toys in a bouquet. Do not touch the top of the base, let it remain flat, but the lower part can be slightly trimmed under the cone. Then start making a pen for your bouquet. The handle in such a bouquet can be made from materials that will be at hand, for example, from a thick poster or the cover of a glossy magazine. You can make a handle from a piece of plastic pipe.
Now how to fix the toys in a bunch. There are different methods of fastening, but the easiest is to glue the toys with a glue gun. But this method has a rather significant minus, when extracting toys from a bouquet, they will not be available without damaging the toys. This method is only suitable if you are going to give toys to adults, they, as a rule, have no desire to get toys, but for children it’s better to use another way, because they are very curious and will definitely try to get toys.
If you decide to make a bouquet with the ability to extract toys, then fasten them with ribbons or bows, to which the toys will be tied with wooden skewers.
There is also a way of fixing toys with a special floristic wire. To do this, take a piece of wire and gently pierce the bottom of the toy, sometimes use steel wire, but it is quite difficult to bend. Pierce each toy through, then bend the wire and twist its two ends down.
Now you just need to stick your toys in the base, sit down your little animals as you like. The advantage of this method is that you can transplant your toys many times and make the perfect bouquet composition. But before attaching the toys to the base, you should fasten the handle to the base, and drape the base. How to drape the base? To do this, you can use any textile material, wrap a piece of it around the base and attach it with glue, pins or a stapler. Insert the handle into the hole made in the base, smeared with glue.
