It has been a while since my last post. I haven't forgetten about you, I promise! My family and I have been having a very busy Summer! I have a lot of awesome things in the works that I cannot wait to share with you!
But, in the mean time.... I wanted to post a few things that were ridiculously easy to throw together. A while back I wrote a blog post and added it to pinterest.... About an hour later I thought "People aren't going to like these..." and I took the post down. Well, little did I know, the photos were still up on the website and I have been getting a huge response from people! So.... I decided I will repost them and explain (very briefly) how I made them!
My daughter, Presley, turned 3 in March. I had a rainbow/hot air balloon themed birthday party for her.
I made the hot air balloons out of paper lanterns, Chinese to-go containers, burlap, twine, and scrapbooking embellishments.
Above the food table, I hung a rainbow made out of glittery tulle.
After the party I needed something to do with all of my leftover materials. I had to justify spending $80 on fabric that I hung on the wall for 3 hours.
I made a tutu for my daughter, but I still had a bunch leftover. So I decided to hang the hot air balloons in her room and then make a wreath for her bedroom door.
No sewing required. I got a foam wreath from the dollar store, then I cut the tulle into strips, and tied them around the wreath. You can make the tutu the same way. I used an elastic headband to put around my daughters waist.
I found a frame at a garage sale. I spray painted it, painted a cardboard letter with acrylic paint, and put a piece of scrapbook paper on the front. Tah-da! DIY Wall decor... for $2!
I made this last Christmas. I covered the front of (already painted) black letters with mod podge, sprinkled red glitter over the top, and shook off the excess glitter. I had this candle ring with red beads laying around the house, so I used that for the "O".
