You guys, I can hardly believe that my littlest love child is already two years old and my number one son is starting kindergarten!! Lately, I have been working on savoring every sweet moment. This has been altogether challenging and rewarding.
We just celebrated my baby girl’s birthday. It was a mellow beach day with close family and friends. I wasn’t going to do any decorations, but at the last minute, I recalled a cute thing I had seen online about a year ago. I remember thinking it looked simple, so I thought I would give it a go.
Here is how i did it:
I cut out my number with reclaimed 😉 cardboard. As you can see, I just eyeballed the shape with my Sharpie before I cut it out. It’s 2′ tall.
Then, I hand tore a colorful assortment of pre-loved wrapping tissue paper in to little squares about 3″ each.
In the end there were still tiny areas where you could see the princess box in the background. As a quick fix I pressed my hands down on to the tissue poofs and it covered anything I didn’t want to see.
This was such a fun, easy project to do in a pinch. Anyone can do it with items you already have around the house. It would be really fun to do big letters and spell something out for a party.
And this is what happens when you leave your newly finished, fancy arts and crafts in the reach of a two year old.
Lucky for me, Elmer’s dries clear!
