Hey there…a few weeks ago the one and only Molla-Cutie turned 6. She started planning her party before Christmas (to be clear..*I* didn’t start planning then…*SHE* did).
My mission (should I chose to accept it)?
To pull off one of the best birthday parties ever in Molly’s little life.
All I have to say is THANK GOD FOR PINTEREST. I immediately started perusing the pinboard site from the heavens and was overwhelmed with ideas! The first idea I had (based off of countless images was to make hair braids using barrettes).
I started with a POUND of yarn and a bag of hair clips.
I cut 15 strands of yarn, each 10′long (That’s 150′ of yarn per barrette folks). I then folded each piece over the barrette and hot glued it down making 30 pieces of yarn for the braid.
As one of the birthday crafts I purchased foam stickers and let the girls decorate their braids. I wish I had gotten a few pictures of them decorating but it was a little hectic at the time! Let’s just say glitter and foam stickers were flying everywhere! When they finished their braids they sat down and had their picture taken in a frame I made.
I then painted it with some Martha Stewart acrylic craft paint. I painted 2 coats of the white paint the day before the party and decorated it as best I could the morning of the event. I couldn’t get too fancy shmancy with it and expect it to be dry. Thankfully the paint dries pretty fast. I hot glued ribbon around the inside square
to hide my uneven cuts to give it a more clean look.
But what would a Tangled party be without hair falling out a window (and draped over a gutter)?
So that’s it. Part 1 of Molly’s Tangled Party extravaganza. All about the hair. Hope you found some inspiration! Thanks for stopping by!
