Have a Magical Holiday!

This year there is so much to be thankful for, but mostly my sweet little growing family. Waverly is 3 now and life is a big game of make believe, so here she is as little red riding hood in a mini photo shoot by our great friends over at K and K Photography. We wish you all the happiest of holidays full of wonder, whimsy and joy. Thank you for all the love and support!

DIY Birthday Cake Banners and Party Hats


 I made these cuties as a custom order for friend who’s twin boys were turning 1.  I loved how they turned out, it was super easy to do and had such a high payoff! My kind of craft. 

Party Hats:

1. buy inexpensive already made cone party hats

2. cut a bunch of little “scales” of felt (they can be different and random)

3. hot glue them to the party hats starting at the top and overlapping a little as you work your way down

4. hot glue a pom-pom to the top

5. cut out burlap “ribbons” and attach with hot glue (burlap is available at any craft or fabric store, thicker is better)

6. cut out felt number and attach with hot glue

7. see below for banner instructions

8. attach banner with tiny scrapbooking brads


1. cut out little triangles of scrapbooking paper. I like to layer the pieces so you cut a bunch at once

2. stamp your letters on each triangle with alphabet stamps. I love these from Paper Source 

3. put a thin line of regular glue (Elmer’s or similar) on your twine/string (lying flat) and carefully place your triangles on.

4. Let it dry for about 30 minutes

5. for cake banners, tie onto wooden skewer sticks (see last picture below) or cute paper straws <—-most amaze birchwood ones

6. for the hats, tie around the scrapbooking brads and poke into the hat (I also glued a little piece of felt on the inside to cover the pointy end of the brad)
