Little Girl's Sleep Over Party ~ Wednesday
On Wednesday I worked on a cake stand made with 2 items from the Dollar Tree: a silver platter and a 6 pack of plastic wine cups. I wanted to keep in the pink-black-white theme, so I pulled out the trusty paint. I took one of the plastic cups and painted it hot pink-2 coats.
Because this is a plastic cup, I wanted to weight down the inside before attaching my silver platter to the top. Too much weight on either side of the platter and over she will go! I took some more of the glass rocks I had (I had these in vases with artificial flowers that had been stored away for some time) and filled the cup to the top.
Also on Wednesday, I made candy melt pretzels and dressed up the display box from Tuesday's post.
For the display box, I made ribbon and crepe paper flowers then attached them to the foam core with toothpicks.
To make the ribbon flowers, I took a needle and thread and began to make stitches on the bottom of the ribbon and started cinching it it. I didn't cut the ribbon from the roll until I had what I felt like was enough. I used 4 yards of ribbon for these you see pictured.
I then took the crepe paper, waded it up and then flattened it back out for texture, and then accordion folded it. Simple, cheap, and made with items on hand!
This mom is worn out and the party is not even here yet! Thursday brings the wall and table decor, candy suckers, and hopefully the home made icing.
