Wine Bottle Decoration, Part 2 – Tissue Paper Pompom

DIY found here: http://www.taradennis.com/create/accessorise/tissue-paper-pom-poms.html

Ingredients

P1110915

  • Ribbon
  • Tissue Paper
  • Double-sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Thread
  • Skewer sticks (or something else to hold the pompoms)

 

Step One

P1110917

Using about 7 pieces of tissue paper cut down to 25cm x 17cm, fold them “accordian” style. Tie a thread around to hold it together and place another piece of thread under the knot. This piece will be used to tie it around the skewer stick.

 

Step Two

P1110918

Cut the edges to form some kind of triangle

 

Step Three

P1110920

While holding the middle (where the thread is), carefully seperate each piece of the tissue paper to form a pompom

 

Step Four / Final Product

P1110923

Using the double-sided tape, tape some ribbon arround the top of the bottle to hide that orange thing that was there last week. Tie the pompoms around one or several skewer sticks and place them inside the bottle. Voila!

I’m not quite sure if I like how it looks, I think I might change it in the future and try to find branches like in the tutorial I linked to above.

 

Until Next Time!

Use the hot glue gun to glue the pompoms on the jar

Ribbon Tree

Idea: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/263812490643649759/ (Sadly the tutorial isn’t there anymore so I improvised)

Ingredients:

P1110579

  • Cardstock
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Tape (I actually ended up using tape instead of the hot glue gun)

 

Step One

P1110580

Cut a Pacman-like shape in the cardstock

 

Step Two

P1110581

Roll up the Pacman-like shape to make a cone. It didn’t end up as tall as I wanted it to be, but it was the biggest I could do and it still ended up pretty.

 

Step Three

P1110582

Make loops with ribbon pieces and attach them to the cone in the matter you chose, for me it’s tape, and make layers. My cone made three layers of ribbon loops.

 

Final Product

P1110584

I put a strand of ribbon on top to hide the last bit of tape and one at the botton since the white of the cone was most visible there. It didn’t look quite like a Christmas tree so I added a star at the top and now it’s perfect! I’m probably going to add some transparent duct tape around each layer’s tape to make sure it sticks well because, let’s be honest, scotch tape isn’t the best at holding stuff.

 

Until Next Time!

Santa Wine Bottle Decoration

Idea from here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/263812490646735608/

Ingredients:

P1110562

  • Wine bottle
  • Big white rhinestones
  • Small/Medium yellow rhinestones
  • Red and black paint
  • Scissors
  • Paint brush
  • Thread (I actually ended up using cotton balls because my thread was too thin)

 

Step One

P1110564

Paint your bottle in red

 

Step Two

P1110568

Paint a black line as thick as you want to make the belt

 

Step Three / Final Product:

P1110569

Put your rhinestones and the cotton balls (or the thread if you had larger thread). I’m not quite liking how the cotton balls look on top, but it’ll do for now.

 

Until Next Time!

Wipes Box First Aid Kit

This summer, my baby started walking outside and since he was just starting to walk, he would fall often. His many scratches and few cuts made me think we should get a First Aid Kit. Seeing as the store bought First Aid Kits aren’t cheap and you barely use half of what’s in there, I figured I could take one of the million wipes boxes we have and make one of my own! I finally got around to doing it (a few months later) and here’s the result!

Ingredients:

P1110344

  • Wipes Box
  • Scissors
  • Double sided tape
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • I had to add some ribbon at the end

Step One:

P1110346

Measure the sides of the wipes box and cut the scrapbook paper accordingly.

Step Two:

P1110456

Use the double double sided tape to stick the scrapbook paper on the box. Personally, I didn’t feel like trying to figure out how to cover the top as well, so it’ll stay like that. You can’t really see in the picture, but with my lack of seeing when stuff is straight, I put the paper a bit crooked. I’ll hide that with the ribbon.

Step Three:

P1110457

Couldn’t find proper ribbon that fit with the scrapbook paper, but I liked that one so it’s going to be a mix of colors that don’t fit. I used a hot glue gun to glue the ribbon around the top of the box and glue the bow in the front.

What I put inside:

P1110458

For now all our family needs are band-aids (normal ones in the box and on the side there are the Smurf ones for my son XD ), some Polysporin and some non-woven compresses.

 

Of course you could always just leave the box as it is and not bother decorating it, but what’s the fun in that 😉

 

Until Next Time!
