What a fun week it's been with parties! There were so many amazing ones added that I tried to pick an assortment of favorites. I love this pizza birthday party made to look like an old school pizzeria, a back to school party with the most insane desserts (it's back to school for us this week), a bird themed baby shower that's set in the woods that will take your breath away, an a cops and robbers Lego party that is so beautiful, creative, and most of all, fun!

{DIY} How to Make a Cute Animal Garland

animalgarlandDIY

Laurel Stavros from A Bubbly Life, was inspired by this post on Curbly to use little plastic animals to make a garland for a jungle baby shower she threw.  How clever an idea!!
plasticanimaldiy

Here's how she did it...

MATERIALS

  • Plastic animals
  • Small screw eyelets
  • Drill
  • Spray Paint
  • Thin 26 gauge wire for hanging

DIRECTIONS

First, Laurel used a power drill (an exciting moment in her life!) to drill a hole in the middle of the animal, then screwed in an eyelet.

animalDIY

Next she spray painted her animals, two coats or more were needed.

To hang the garland, she used thin wire so that the animals would stay in place.

And look how great it turned out!

And here's the garland in action at the baby shower she threw!

Thank you, Laurel for letting me share your ingenious idea and adorable garland!
