Ornament Wreath How To

Supplies Needed:  Straw wreath form, hot glue gun/glue, Ornaments

Begin by hot gluing the large ornaments to the wreath form along the inside and outside edges of the wreath.

Then slowly layer the ornaments until the wreath is covered.  Once you have no more room for large ornaments fill in any gaps with the smaller ornaments.

Sweater Wreath How To

Start with your supplies –  All you need is an 18 inch styrofoam wreath and a sweater.

First you will need to cover the foam form with the sweater.  Cutting along the seam that would start at your armpit and go down your arm.

So now you need to glue it to your wreath form.  Lay the sweater right side down and glue a little bit at a time one edge on top of the other.

You will have an ugly seam at the bottom which you will hide with the felt flowers and there will be another seam at the top which you will hide with a sign.

Twine Star Wreath How To

Lay 10 wood shims on a flat surface in a star pattern. Arrange the shims so a thin end on one shim rests on the thick end of another.

At each place where the shims overlap, apply wood glue and press the shims together. Use weights, such as quart cans, to press the wood pieces together for two hours.

Start at one point on the star and wrap twine around the frame until you reach the opposite side. Avoid putting too much tension on the twine. Keep the twine from slipping off by dabbing hot glue on strands at the back of the star.

Cut a piece of twine about 8 inches long and tie a loop in the center.

On the back of the star along one of the five points near the base, glue one loose end from the loop to each shim to hang the ornament.

Thanks again for stopping by Party Fetti, stay tuned for more Christmas ideas!

HOME DECOR-TWIG WREATH REDO

Great News!  I FINALLY opened my Etsy shop!  I’d been talking about it for about a year and just had not had a chance to get it going.  I’m also starting up a local event planning/party design business- PAPER MOMENTS!  I’ll be specializing in party favors and decor handmade from . . . what else- paper!
I’ve had this twig wreath hanging on my office door for a few months now and finally decided it needed a slight upgrade.  It was nice plain, it just needed a little something, something!  Ah-ha. . .I know, LITTLE YELLOW FLOWERS!  Below are the photos from before and after the REDO.

Have a great week.

Mermaid Party DIY Project

DIY Project For A Mermaid Party

Today I am sharing an easy way to brighten up your Mermaid party and add some inexpensive colorful seashells!  While you could go with regular seashells straight out of the ocean- why not give your shells a color make over?  This project is super easy too!

Before we get to the how to tutorial on how to dye your seashells, feel free to stop by any of my Etsy Shops for all your mermaid decorations.

How to Color Seashells
If you live near a beach or are vacationing at the beach this summer, fill up a bucket of shells and bring them home.  These would look great in a bucket at your mermaid party- or make something with them- add them to craft projects, wreaths, or a table centerpiece.  If you have no plans to go to the beach this year, no worries, you can purchase shells from most arts and crafts stores too.

Here’s What You’ll Need:
White Vinegar
White or Light-Colored Seashells
Food Coloring
Small Bowls
Spoon
Paper Towels
Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

1. Gather your shells and supplies.


2. Fill small bowls with a 5-6 drops of food coloring, one color per bowl.
Add about ⅓ cup of vinegar to each bowl.
Use a spoon to stir the vinegar and food coloring until combined.
Submerge your shells in your desired color and allow them to soak in the mixture for 1-3 hours.  This process is much like dying Easter eggs!


If you want lighter colors, shorten the soak time. If you want darker, more saturated color, leave the shells in longer.

3. Remove them from the dye and allow them to air dry on a paper towels, no blotting or rubbing is necessary.


Once completely air-dried, arrange your shells  anywhere at your mermaid party!

They look great in a clear glass vase, a bowl, glued to a wreath or party sign, or anywhere at the celebration!

You may notice that The Party Fetti Blog is not updated as often over the summer as I’ll be busy making many party decorations for summer birthdays, weddings, and other celebrations for my five Etsy shops.

This is my busiest time of year and so new blog posts and party inspiration only happens about once a month or so or when I have time in between my full-time graphic design work schedule and my weekly custom orders in my Etsy shops.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and today I have some stunning gift ideas that you can easily make yourself with paper flowers.  A few weeks ago, I shared some inspiring large scale flower backdrops and if you love these giant paper flowers, you can see that post – HERE

To make smaller paper flowers, you can use paper punches or metal dies to cut them in a cutting machine, such as a Sizzix Big Shot or a Cricut Cuttlebug.

However, if you don’t have a cutting machine and all the metal dies, paper and equipment – you can absolutely short cut some paper flower gifts by visiting my craft shop and order already cut flowers that you can easily assemble and add them to anything.

Stop by my shop for a variety of paper flowers here – READY SET CRAFT KITS

Below are several creative gift ideas you can make with paper flowers for your mother for Mother’s Day.

A beautiful handmade Mother’s Day card with 3-D flowers added on the front.

A paper flower wreath to hang on a door or wall inside the home.

A flower decorated birdhouse.

A flower monogram letter.

Instead of paper flowers, how about paper succulents as a table centerpiece.

A simple flower notebook and pin – perfect for a grocery list pad or a to do list notebook.

Framed wall art featuring handmade paper flowers will make your mother smile every day.

A flower bouquet that will never wilt would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift too!
