I promised this tutorial and I have been delaying it so much, but today woke up with the mind that I was going to finish this one, finally. I will show you how I made the Vase with the Hat on top. Keep reading for the tutorial.
For this tutorial I'm re- purposing one that I made for my home and it was really cheap less that $5 dollars. I bought all the materials at the dollar store.
This is the vase that I made. Do you want to see this tutorial? Click HERE.
For this tutorial I used:
-Tissue paper in red
-1" polka dot turquoise ribbon
-2 wood sticks
-1" polka dot black ribbon
-1 hat (i covered mine with stripped fabric)
-3 glitter pipe cleaners in red
I started with the tissue paper making thing cuts to have this appearance. I guess you could use a paper shredding machine.
Once I had all the tissue paper shredded I put it inside the vase to add a bit of color.
Now wrap the vase with the turquoise ribbon, I choose the middle part but you can add it where you want to.
This is what it looks like.
Now is time for the mini pom poms. I made mine with this turquoise tissue paper inspired by Thing One and Thing Two hair. The first thing I did was figure out how big I wanted my pompoms and they ended up being about 5" or something similar. I can't remember the size of tissue paper I used, but I folded the paper in 4 parts and cut it. I did used about 4 to 5 sheets of paper.
Then I folded all the layers of paper like this about 1/2".
Tied them in the middle to secure them.
And cut the ends in this pointy shape to make them look a bit crazy. After that all you have to do it open the pom pom really careful not to brake them. If you want to see how I make my pom poms check this tutorial HERE.
Put the pom pom with the stick peeking out from the vase. I did used a dot of glue to secure it better.
And this is what it looks like, hope this helped and happy party planning, xoxo.
