On Monday I shared my little boy’s “Have a Ball” Birthday Party.
Today I’m going to share 3 simple, DIY projects from his party — all of which could easily be adjusted to fit any party color scheme.
The Pom-Pom garland was one of my favorite projects — and it turned out quite simple too!
… plus some clothespins.
Your guests will love this decoration too — it’s so fun to see how a little one has changed over the course of a year.
I was a bit intimidated to recreate this look but after reading Ashley’s tutorial, I decided to go for it. She describes watercolors as somewhat forgiving and suggests creating a small trial version first. I studied the rest of her tips, picked up a sheet of Watercolor Paper and a Watercolor Kit from Michael’s (again — with 40% off coupons!) and got to work.
My trial version turned out pretty good and taught me A LOT. I got a feel for how quickly the paint dries, how much water to use, how the colors blend, etc. So unless you have done a lot with watercolors, I would encourage you to create a trial version first.
I loved my watercolors so much, I made some art for the gallery wall that is coming together in our entry way too!
