Rainbow Party

A client sent over this image from a Styled Shoot produced by Oh Happy Day as inspiration for her sons’ celebration. She requested rainbow colored 🌈 ribbons for our white chiavaris.

After a visit to Walmart’s craft section we got right to work with adhering the ribbon to 30 chairs.

DIY Lace Party Crowns

Interested in a cool, easy to assemble children's party favor/decor element?! Check out this post dedicated to creating a do-it-yourself lace crown.

Materials List:

  • Lace - 13-15" {depending on desired size}
  • Aleene's fabric stiffener 
  • Metallic paint or a paint pen
  • Wax paper
  • Paint brush
  • Plastic gloves
  • Round container {e.g. coffee can}
  • Glue gun
  • Shallow dish
  • Clothes pin

PROCEDURE

Step one: "Wrap the container you plan to use with plastic wrap or wax paper.  I used a small coffee can for newborn sized crowns, and the large one (pictured) for bigger kids.  If you don’t wrap the can, you will get rust colored stains on the lace."

Step two: "Cut the lace to the desired length.  15 inches works for newborn crowns."

Step three: "Pour some of the fabric stiffener into a shallow container. Rub the lace in it and squeeze out the excess."

Step four: "Wrap the lace around the container. Secure with a pin or clip."

Step five: "Once it’s dried, peel the lace off the container. Glue the ends together."

Step six: "Embellish it."
