MOPS Plunge Theme Centerpieces...

These are the centerpieces that we came up with yesterday for the new MOPS theme, Plunge.

The Ocean Fun Table

We found all most all of the supplies at Michael's in the dollar section! The fish net and the smooth white wreath are the only things that we got from Hobby Lobby. We also got the battery tea lights (3 per pack) at the Dollar Tree. I made the first one this morning before our Steering Team meeting. It was super easy! 

To make the first one... We bought a .5 gallon mason jar and filled it with sand, shells, a starfish, and a tea light. Then, we hot glued the little sign to a skewer and poked a hole in the mason jar lid with a nail (this will keep the sign centered and stable). The lifesaver is just as easy to throw together. All it requires is the embellishment ribbon (that we found in the same dollar section as the journals and signs) wrapped around the wreath and secured with hot glue on both ends. Ta~Da! 

We are going to add a few finishing touches, like add some cute scrapbook paper to the top of the jar lids and some more of the embellishment ribbon around the neck of the jar. 

Here are the pictures of the other table themes...

The Swimming Table

The Ahoy Table

The Fishing Table

The Sail Away Table

The Anchors Aweigh Table

They only had six styles, which worked out perfect for us because we only have six tables. So... each table will get their own mason jar with their sign, matching embellishment lifesaver, and a coordinating prayer journal. 

I think that we have an awesome set up this year! What do you think?
