So I couldn’t wait for tomorrow and had to share today! My friend Nancy from A to Zebra Celebrations had a girly halloween soiree for her lil’ chicks yesterday and I was so fortunate to create the printables plus a little DIY project for the event. Wait until you see the details from her party…AMAZING!! Hopefully we’ll get to see the photos this week. This quick and easy project is a great addition to any party decor…in this particular one I used Twinkle Candy lolli’s , but you could easily use these for mini flower bouquets, votive candle holders, candy, etc…
Here is what you need:
tin can (I used an empty corn can…empty quart paint cans work great too! You can purchase them at Home Depot)
hot glue gun
Sorry I didn’t take photos of the step by step…but they are that easy!!
Take your decorative paper and cut it to the size of your can. Use hot glue to secure one end of the paper to the can, wrap paper around and secure the other end as well. Next, cut ribbon to go around your can, and repeat the same steps as securing the paper to the can. You can use as much or as little ribbon as you like. Since these were small cans, I didn’t use much, just enough to add some fun! Then, insert a piece of floral foam into the can, if need be, you can secure it with a little glue. Now add you paper filler to hide the foam. Next I cut down the sticks on the lolli’s…they were a little long, after trimming the sticks, I inserted them into the floral foam. I only used 4 lolli’s per can…you can use as many of little as you choose. If you use a bunch, you can make mini lolli bouquets (great for baby shower centerpieces). Finally I embellished the front of the can with a party dot and and made a center decorative sign by using a 4″ printable, a 6″ lollipop stick and some ribbon! Tah-dah!! There you have it, cute and inexpensive party decor, that is fun and easy to make!!
ps…if you are not the crafty type…they will be available to customize and purchase SOON in my Etsy Shop!!
