DIY: Paper Rose Wreath Tutorial

How great would this paper rose wreath look greeting your guests at your next birthday, shower, or Valentine's Day party?

This tutorial from Sandi at I'm a Yarner is so easy but definitely takes some time. So if you've got some Glee to catch up on, it might be worth doing.

And yes, it's just made of rolled paper flowers sprinkled with glitter.

See the whole tutorial here at I'm a Yarner. Thank you Sandi, for making something so beautiful!

DIY TUTORIAL: How to Make Jeweled Pumpkins

I saw these jeweled pumpkins on Glory's blog Glorious Treats and thought they looked so elegant and expensive.

It turns out Glory created these used Martha Stewart Glitter (in onyx) and Martha Stewart Arts & Craft Glue, and that was it!

Think of all the permutations you could make with different designs and different colored glitter...

DIY Tutorial From a Catch My Party Member: How to Make Glitter Christmas Trees

Laura B made these gorgeous glitter Christmas trees as decorations for her Crafty Kids Christmas Party. Not only did they add serious sparkle to her party, but wait 'til you see how inexpensive and easy they are to make.

Laura so generously put together this tutorial for us. Thank you, Laura!

Supplies you will need:

  • 3 styrofoam trees: I used sizes, 15x5, 12x4 and 9x4, but you can use any size you want.
  • 3 small candlesticks. I found these at Michaels for $1.00
  • Spray adhesive
  • Elmer’s glue for the glitter on the bottom and a stronger epoxy like glue ( I used E6000) to glue the tree to the candlesticks
  • Glitter in any colors you LOVE
  • White spray paint
Here’s what you do:
  • Give your tree a good coating of the spray adhesive. It dries pretty fast so you won’t have to wait too too long. Leave the bottom of the tree undone, you will glitter this at the end.
  • Once you have your tree coated in glue, cover it completely with the glitter. Do this for all three trees and then set them aside to dry.
  • While they are drying, you can spray paint your candlesticks. Let those dry. I even saw pretty silver candlesticks. That would look cool to just leave them silver.
  • Now take your E6000 and glue the candlesticks to the trees. Let them sit overnight. They have to be really good and dry.
  • When everything is good and dry, flip them over and put a little Elmer’s glue on the bottom around where the tree is glued to the candlestick. Glitter this.
  • You are done! Find the perfect spot for these and wait for all the compliments. They are so pretty that I had several people not believe I made them!

(I have to give the credit for this tutorial to eighteen25. I originally saw it here.)

What sparkley and fun Christmas trees!  Thank you again, Laura, for sharing with us.
