So I have a confession (for those of you that don't follow me on Instagram) - you know that nice relaxing weekend I posted about on Friday? Well - it was all a lie - but for good reason! I flew to New York on Friday to surprise my sister for her birthday!!! I couldn't say anything (in fact I tried not to talk to her too much last week) as I didn't want to ruin the surprise. Today is her actual birthday and I'm so glad that I am able to spend her special day with her (AND watch the National Championship game together tonight - GO BUCKS!!!). We've had a blast all weekend, and I'll be here in New York until Wednesday morning - man do I miss this place! I will be taking off just a couple days off from the blog to enjoy some good ol quality time with my sisters - but I'll be back on Thursday!
For today's post I found this amazing DIY by Kelli Murray that was just too cute not to share. They look super easy to make and would make for some fun props for a Photobooth. Check out the how-to below:
Supplies: Yarn, paper mache cone (from a craft store), white elastic cord, paint/spray paint to decorate your hats.
Step 1. Create a set of yarn pom poms to place on the top of your party hats. You can see the full tutorial for creating yarn pom poms here.
Step 2: Decorate your hats however you want. To keep yours simple you can just add a little white paint. For the polka dot hat, stick on circular stickers, spray paint the hat, and peel off the stickers after the paint was dry….revealing the cardboard.
Step 3: Poke a hole on each side of the hat with a nail (or whatever works!) Measure out the length of elastic cord that you want and thread it through the holes on either side of the hat.
Step 4: Using a glue gun, attach your yarn pom pom to the top! Enjoy!
Seems easy right? Love love love this and will definitely be trying it out. I love sharing these borrowed DIY's from my favorite bloggers - but start looking forward to a few original Six Eighty Eight projects coming soon!
Have a good one - I'll be back on Thursday!!!
