My baby girl is turning 1 in a months time. we not doing a party but a family picnic. So I’m making a Name banner.
I used foam paper and cut out scalloped circles that i found here. I resized it for 2 sizes. I first printed the scalloped circles then then traced it onto the foam paper and cut.I the glued the different colours ontop of each other. I then got wooden letters and painted them white.Glue the letters onto the scalloped cut outs and glue it with a glue gun to the twain.
I have been searching high and low for multi coloured polka dots plates and cups but i cant find things anywhere. So i decided to DIY some. i bought plain white cups and plates. With pencils with rubbers on the end and then the desired coloured paints.Use a pencil eraser for each colour. Then polka dot away in random patterns till you get desired effect .( the basket and extra cups was there to keep my little diva busy while me and my eldest did the crafts)
once its dry it can by used. Then you can do the same for the plates
And these are mine for the party.
Now i have polka dots plates and cups.
On very short notice i needed bunting for a birthday photoshoot. I couldnt find anything suitable that i could reuse so i decided to make my own. I bought a cheap cheesy Birthday Banner.
And with my Rusto-leum chalkboard spray gave it 2 coats and voila. I had a reusuable bunting. and this is how it looked in the photoshoot.
I found these little beauties the other day at a shop. they are little sponge cut outs in the form of a pill.
They were 4 in a pack for R9.90. so i bought a couple of packs. there were a variety of themes to choose from. I choose water theme and fairies theme.
My diva then gets to through one in every night at bathtime.and she eagerly wait to see what she will get. and then she loves playing with her surprise afterwards. here is her collection this far.Just love seeing her expression when she discovers what it is.
I decided to make something
special for the teachers at my girls school. I saw the chocolate spoons to make
hot chocolate idea in Child Magazine
What you need
I cut up the chocolate and melted it a bowl in the microwave in 30sec increment till melted.
Pour chocolate in spoon and the let the girls decorate spoons. Once spoons are cooled put in fridge till hard.I used cellophane to individually wrap the spoons and made a tag and tie it with a ribbon to the spoon.
My diva was so excited to be giving her teacher chocolate she made.
The original recipe states you just need one spoon per glass of milk. I tried it and to get a nice chocolaty taste you actually need 2-3spoons per teacup. So i put that on the tag
