Center Pieces for Band Banquet

Last Friday night was the year end band banquet for our high school.  As President of the Music Boosters, I was very involved in planning of the banquet.  We had a mother who was very crafty who always made the center pieces each year, her last daughter graduated last year.  I kept my mouth shut about doing something but they couldn't find anyone to do the center pieces so I finally volunteered.   Our band travels to Florida each February and the last 3 out of 4 years we have done parades at Disney World so I knew I wanted to do something with a Disney theme.  So I cut out characters  which included Mickey, Minnie, Donlad Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Nemo, Jack Jack, Winne the Pooh and Tigger. (only showing Mickey in this picture, once I download all of my pictures I will post all of the characters here).  I adhered a wooden skewer to the back of the character and covered it with a second base layer.  Did the same with the "MUSIC TO MY EARS" saying and the music note (this was attached to floral wire).   I took a 4" clay pot and filled it with crumpled paper and nestled a 3" Styrofoam ball in it.  I stuck the skewers/wire into the ball.  Covered with the shredded paper you use to put in gift baskets.  The characters were cut to a maximum of 11" (some were smaller).  These center pieces were a HUGE hit at the banquet. I am very pleased with the way they turned out.
