make it: new year's eve party crackers

this year, we're planning a noon year's eve party for our kiddos...when the clock strikes noon, we'll celebrate with milk and cookies! inspired by our happy everything collection, we thought it would be super fun to make some festive confetti-filled party crackers for our littles to pop open at noon!

MATERIALS

diy cracker materials

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1

cut a piece of crepe paper 4 inches longer than the cardboard tube on each side, and wide enough to wrap around the cardboard tube with about 1/2 inch of overlap. cut a slit in the center of the cardboard tube about halfway around to make it easier to break open.

STEP 2

wrap crepe paper around the tube and secure with hot glue. tie off one end with twine and fill with confetti. once the tube is filled, tie off the remaining end.

make it: baby butterfly costume

make it: baby butterfly costume

while swooning over the butterfly plates from our flutter collection, it suddenly occurred to us that they could probably be used to craft a super cute halloween costume for little babes! while the plates are gorgeous on their own, we will show you how to embellish them a bit to make them a little more fancy and costume-worthy in this simple tutorial! they are one-size-fits-most (babies)...but based on the plate size, we recommend them for one and under. let’s get started, shall we?

MATERIALS

butterfly wings

materials for butterfly wings

antennae

antennae materials

INSTRUCTIONS

butterfly wings

STEP 1

trace your butterfly plate onto posterboard and cut it out.

step 1: trace the plate on posterboard


STEP 2

fold your tulle in half, and glue the open side of the folded tulle around the entire edge of the posterboard butterfly using tacky glue. it will stay in place best after step 3!

step 2: glue tulle to posterboard


STEP 3

use tacky glue to attach party streamers to the entire edge of the posterboard butterfly, right on top of the tulle. push it down firmly, to hold the tulle in place as well. allow to dry.

step 3: glue streamers to posterboard

STEP 4

use a hole punch to place two holes at the top of each posterboard wing, a little over an inch apart. cut your ribbon into two strips about 48 inches long, and string one through the holes on each side, so that the tails are hanging in the back, and there is a small loop on the front. tie each ribbon in a knot at the middle, on the back of the wings.

step 4: punch holes in posterboard and attach ribbon

STEP 5

glue your butterfly plate to the front of the posterboard wings, with the tulle and streamers showing around all edges. allow to dry. now you’re ready to wrap the ribbons under your baby’s armpit, and tie a bow near the shoulder on both sides.

step 5: glue plate to posterboard


antennae

STEP 1

use a sponge brush to cover two styrofoam balls in tacky glue, and then cover in glitter. allow to dry, and shake off any excess.

step 1: cover styrofoam balls in glue and glitter

STEP 2

fold your pipe cleaner in half over the headband to one side, and twist together until it is firmly in place. repeat with a second pipe cleaner on the other side of the headband.  

step 2: attach pipe cleaners to headband

STEP 3

cut each pipe cleaner down to about 3 inches. poke the pipe cleaners through the styrofoam balls until they stay in place, and so that you have one on each side.

step 3: cut pipe cleaners and attach styrofoam balls

 
your little butterfly is ready to fly! happy halloween!

make it: googly eye party backdrop

make it: googly eye party backdrop

this diy party backdrop by rebecca thuss has been a long-time favorite of ours...so when we launched our new eyeball plates, we thought it would be fun to use them to create a totally eye-catching backdrop of our own! this backdrop would be so perfect to use as a photo or table backdrop for halloween or a monsters party!

MATERIALS

materials: plates, 1" binder rings, hole punch, scissors, ruler

    INSTRUCTIONS

    STEP 1

    to make a template, cut away the rim of an eyeball plate and fold in half to form a crease. unfold and punch two holes along the crease, 1/4” away from each edge.

    step 1: make template
     

    STEP 2

    use the template created in step 1 as a guide to punch holes in remaining plates, making sure to vary the placement of the holes so the eyeballs are oriented in different directions.

    STEP 3

    connect plates using 1” binder rings so they form chains measuring the desired length of the backdrop. use string and tape to hang, staggering the starting height of every other chain so the plates nest together!

    step 3: connect with binder rings 

    STEP 4

    time to party!

    step 4: time to party!
