Still hard at work on DIY projects!
It seems I just can't stop myself from making things these days. I admit it, I have problems.
First up, a DIY cupcake stand.
I used two different sized hat boxes from Hobby Lobby to create this cupcake stand, which will be the centerpiece of my dessert display for the Diamonds and Damask party.
In the middle is a simple cylindrical vase that I filled with "diamonds," also found at Hobby Lobby. This picture doesn't do the stand justice--it is really big. I can't wait to see it filled with cupcakes and the cute toppers that I made!
Did anyone else see this brilliant tutorial on crepe paper roses and pomanders? I don't even remember where I saw the link to these, but Danielle at Homespun with Heart is my new hero. Look at these gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous pomanders that she made out of crepe paper! Don't they look totally real?
She totally inspired me to do my own version for the party! I wanted something besides the same old tissue poms and I think this is PERFECT!
It's totally time consuming, but utterly worth it! I've completed two large ones, and I am working on 3 smaller ones at the moment.
The black and white ones are made of zebra patterned crepe paper, which I just could not say no to!
