Ice cream party

I had the privilege of going to my neighbor’s baby’s first birthday! It was adorable! It was ice cream theme. With her permission I just had to show you what she did!

She made this banner with doilies and paper.

These were the best! They are cupcakes inside a ice cream cone! The kids loved them! The red gum ball on the top was my favorite.

DIY treat holder Frankenstein

A couple of years ago my in-laws and I had a craft night. It was in early October and we had two crafts. This was easy for adults and the kids did it also. It would be great for classroom parties or your own party at home.

First take a 8×10 piece of card stock and measure and cut a 4″ strip.

Fold into three sections with a lip on the last section and then fold into a triangle and glue lip to the backside on the paper.

Then cut out the hair design. Then glue hair into place.

Cut out and glue silver paper bolts onto both sides of his face.

Draw a mouth.

Add eyes and you have your finished product! I put a pack of skittles inside for her friends and it fit perfectly. Feel free to add your favorite candy! Enjoy!

DIY fish!

For my son’s first birthday we did an ocean themed party. I wanted to show you how they are made.

1. Pick small glass vases from your local dollar store. (Or you can use the ones you have)

2. Glue on eyes. Hot glue is the only thing that works.

3. Stuff with tissue paper!

That’s all! Hope you liked it! If you would like to check out the fish at the party here’s the link

DIY party fans!

I have used fans for decorations in a couple of post so now I’m going to show you how it! My mom had to teach me so here we go!

You will need a hot glue gun, paper of your choice, a ruler, scissors, and a decoration to go on top.

20130802-131550.jpg
First know what size your paper is. In this case it is 12×12. Cut three equal strips. 4” each.

20130802-131821.jpg
Cut the paper into three and then fan fold each strip of paper.

Add glue to one end and attach the folded paper ends together.

20130802-132219.jpg
Glue all sides together until it’s a full circle. Add glue to the middle on the back side to keep it all together.

20130802-132335.jpg
After the glue is dry you can add on any kind of decorative flower or gem!

20130802-132541.jpg
There you have it! It takes about 3-5 minutes for one. They are cute and don’t cost much! Enjoy!
Here are some other fans from the past!
