Interior Decorating - 3 Way Mirror

I recently visited Ikea. I saw a 3 way mirror that I had to have. Since I'm Super Woman I figured that I could make it myself. I saw door mirrors in another store that were very expensive, but I didn't want to mess the mirrors up. I decided to practice with 3 inexpensive mirrors that I purchased from Walmart. While at Walmart I picked up a couple of packs of hinges and a saw-tooth picture hook for the project. Everything cost less than $20.00.

I'm a visual person and I prefer not to read the instructions. LOL! I normally see stuff and just make it, but this time I screwed the hinges on backwards TWICE. I finally gave up and found a tutorial on Detective Houndstooth.

I read the tutorial, it took me about 2 hours to put it all together and install it on the wall. LOL. I think that it cute and useful!

Enjoy!

Baby Shower - Winter Wonderland Theme


Let me tell you, I'm so happy that the day has come and gone. I had glitter everywhere, in my car, in my hair, on my clothes, etc.

I only had one hour to decorate. Man O Man, we were rolling! Since I knew that my time was limited, I made a floor plan. My helpers were great with executing my plan.






The Finished Party

The Baby Shower was a blast!

By the way, the silver plates were purchased from Hobby Lobby. I forgot to take pictures of some the other crafts that I made, like the baby booties. I spray painted them and applied rhinestone ribbon to them to match the party.

I made several cupcake holders for the dessert table. They were made from a square Styrofoam block, a square mirror, rhinestone ribbon and glue. In addition, I used the same type of jar for the candy, but embellished them with blue solid ribbon and sheer metallic ribbon and snowflake stickers. I'm sure that I'm missing some of the other stuff that I embellished. Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

I love the way that the party turned out. I wish that I could have used more snow, but there were so many restrictions at the venue. :-(

Toy Stokes assisted and help set up the dessert table.  She made the cake, cupcakes, cookies, and cake pops. It was quite fabulous! Everything looked and tasted good.

Enjoy!

Fun Crafts - Winter Wonderland Baby Shower Crafts

Hello All,

I'm still working on the Winter Wonderland Baby Shower. I would like to share some of the things that I've been working on. I will post the rest of the items and the shower shortly after the actual event.

ENJOY!


BABY BLOCKS & GLITTER SNOWMAN

I purchased some small boxes from AC Moore, Silver Roll and Blue Roll of Glitter Wrapping Paper from Walmart, Royal Blue Rhinestone Ribbon from Hobby Lobby, Spray Paint from The Home Depot, and Glitter Snowman from Big Lots. I used Spray Adhesive to cover the boxes with the wrapping paper. Then, I applied the Rhinestone Ribbon to the edge of the boxes. I hand cut the letters and applied them to each side with glue. (Can you believe that I'm still hand-cutting when I own a Cricut Machine - LOL.) The Snowman's accessories were initially light blue.  I removed them and spray painted them. (I will spray paint anything - LOL).

ADVICE BOX

I purchased medium boxes from AC Moore, Silver Roll and Blue Roll of Glitter Wrapping Paper from Walmart, Silver Rhinestone Ribbon from Michaels. I used Spray Adhesive to cover the boxes with the wrapping paper. I applied Rhinestone Ribbon to the top and the slot with my glue gun. Nice and Simple!


GLITTER PACIFIERS

I purchased the two different pacifiers from The Dollar Tree, Spray Paint from The Home Depot, glue for glittering from AC Moore, extra fine glitter from Michaels. This glittering glue is the best thing popping. The brush on the inside of the glue bottle was perfect! It adheres evenly. The glitter isn't all over the place.  This was an easy project. I spray painted the pacifiers, waited for them to dry, applied glue, then sprinkled on glitter.


BABY STROLLER

I purchased the strollers from The Dollar Tree, Spray Paint from The Home Depot, Silver Rhinestone Ribbon from Michaels, and Rhinestones from AC Moore.  Another easy project. I spray painted the Strollers, waited for them to dry, applied the rhinestone ribbon to the trim, and then applied the rhinestones to the wheels with my glue gun.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Let me tell you that there is a plus and negative about having a Winter Wonderland Baby Shower after Christmas. I got some discounts and some things were full price. After searching, I was able to find everything that I needed at reasonable prices.

Plus
You can find items greatly discounted.
Negative
You can't find the colors you need because everyone has purchased all the good stuff.

STAY TUNED!
