Happy Monday, Friends!!
We are so, so excited to launch The Shop Sweet Lulu Design Team Today!!
We have collaborate with some very talented bloggers (hopefully some you already know and love) to create one of a kind, outside the box DIY tutorials using party pretties from our shop.....so fun, right?!
We are kicking things off with a tutorial from the fabulous Kelly Lanza of Studio DIY. If you follow us on Facebook, Kelly should be no stranger to you, as we are obsessed with her creative tutorials and post her projects on our Facebook wall often. After we met her at Alt Summit (and her business card was a handmade tissue pom pom) we knew we HAD to work together. I mean, seriously, she loves confetti, glitter & mylar as much as we do, how could we not love her?!!!
So, let's get this party started! I give you the talented Kelly Lanza....................
Hey everyone! I'm Kelly and I blog over at Studio DIY where I celebrate the holidays and the every day, the DIY way. I'm so excited to be sharing an Easter DIY with you, it's a good one! I know Easter is typically associated with big, over the top bonnets, but sometimes it's fun to throw people for a loop... and go mini sized! These petit party hats are perfect for Easter brunching and egg hunting for both the kids and the adults, if you ask me! You can make them in whatever springy color palette you so please to match those fancy new dresses, too! Bet you didn't know candy cups could double as hairware, eh? Let's get started!
Here are the supplies you are going to need to make these fabulous hats:
Hair Clips (available online, at a craft store & local drugstore.)
Hot Glue Gun
HOW TO MAKE:
Trace your candy cup on your cardstock and cut out the circle.
Run a line of hot glue along the inner edge of the candy cup's rim and attach the paper circle.
Your candy cup should now look like this...........
Pinch the center of your tissue paper square and twist it to form the poof. Hot glue this to the side of your candy cup.
Working in small sections hot glue your fringe garland around the rim of your cup, going over where you glued the tissue paper poof. Trim your garland once you've covered the entire rim and fluff your fringe.
Finally, glue your hair clip to the cardstock on the bottom of your hat, making sure the end of the clip hangs over the edge for easy gripping.
And that's a wrap! Now you just need to wait for the Easter bunny to do his thing so you can get to egg hunting and candy eating, all while looking totally fancy in your new mini hats!
