Here's the loot I got from the dollar store to aide me in my next few crafts. I got all my ideas via pinterest. There are some amazing people in blog land and thanks to pinterest I can easily find their great ideas and share them.
For the first project I made a pom pomander out of cupcake liners. I got the idea here at Kara's Party Ideas. I love this site!! Go there and check it out right now. I'll wait. She has every party idea you can think of.
Ok so she used pins and being as I'm cheap and don't want to use my precious pins, I just hot glued them to the styrofoam ball. And since it was the dollar store there cupcake liner options were limited. As in they only had white. So First I held the center of the liner and squished it.... See...? Ok if you don't refer back to Kara's awesome tutorial here. You will also notice that she used several liners with one pin. I only used one at a time.
Since I didn't want to use the pin I needed to do only one liner at a time and I bent the tip to glue it to the ball. Use the lower setting on your glue gun so you won't burn a hole thru the ball, just sayin'.
Then fluff the liner to spread it out a little.
Continue to glue the liners fairly close, so the styrofoam doesn't show thru.
Leave a gap at the bottom so that is will sit on the candle stick holder.
I got mine at the dollar store, nothing fancy but it works.
Ain't she purdy?!
Super simple right?
I did the same thing with coffee filters to make a bigger one. But I didn't leave a hole I filled the whole thing to make a big flower lookin' poof. Turned out super cute. I'll show you in the room's reveal.
Total for the project:
Package of cupcake liners $1
Glass Candle Stick Holder $1
Bag of 4 Styrofoam balls $1 (use one ball .25 each)
If you do this project send us some pictures, we would love to see your twist on it!!
